Item244: nonwikiword is never really checked
At a number of places there is a checkbox "Allow non WikiWord
for the new topic name". This setting is actually not checked when creating a topic, except for
where this concept originates. The code for checking is in
Solution: enhance Manage by creating subroutines for topic creation. Add the check in that routine.

additional: it's also especially
annoying when the topic that you're moving (which is a form of rename), is already
a non-WikiWord and the checkbox isn't checked by default and you get an error message when you simply select a new web to move the topic to.
- This is a perfect example why moving != renaming. On the file level it is the same, on a conceptual level they are different and should be offered differently to the user. So when moving the rename option should not be displayed at all, unless you want to rename while moving. -- ArthurClemens - 23 Nov 2008 - 00:50

- added subroutine for copying topic, as this functionality was added in Item1873 but lacked a working check
- abstracted out the handling of param 'nonwikiword'
I will now continue on the topic creation. I imagine the html form like this:
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="create" />

I have generalized the copy subroutine to create topics so the form example above works for copying as well.
