[MojoMojo] MojoMojo extensions

I don't know how well this idea fits with MojoMojo's objectives, but I
figured I'd get it out into the ether for critiquing, and if people like it,
slated for a future release.

I was thinking MM could use an extension mechanism similar to MediaWiki's. 
Here's a summary of my ideas:

- Additional page actions.  I don't have a concrete example of how this
would be used, but I can see how it would come in handy.
- Modification of existing page actions.  I don't know how this would work,
and if an overriden/augmented action were provided by another extension, we
would have to deal with the fun that is plugin load order.
- Additional syntax.  This seems to be provided by the formatter stuff
- Special pages.  These could all be under /special/, or they might exist
anywhere in the hierarchy (I think all existing under /special/ and adding
redirects if you want them would be a good option).  Special pages just
dispatch to extension controllers to deliver custom content, and can even
take arguments (ex. /special/calenders/home/Nov 2009).
