Macros are not expanded within a interwiki link definition.

The case here is specific to We need to map svn rev's to git hash references. A new macro plugin / macro is created that will map rev to ref.

distro:38a5a7f35c6c returns df46972 which could be used in a github url.

However the interwiki definition:

Foswikiref svn rev revision $page of 'Foswiki'

fails to expand the macro in the rendered link.

Simple solution is to call expandCommonVariables on the link generated by InterwikiPlugin.

This fix is still needed, but unfortunately it's not enough to support the migration to Github. Since a single SVN rev can expand into multiple git commits, we need to override the returned url format.
