LinkOptionsPlugin, which introduces [[URL_or_TOPIC][LABEL][OPTIONS]] notation, has several issues.
  1. Class:CLASS_NAME option is supposed to replace an existing class attribute if it's there. But it adds class="CLASS_NAME" attribute without removing the class attribute an ordinary link has.
  2. It calls TWiki::Func::renderText("[[$link][$text]]") at the beginning of its processing. And it assumes that the return value starts with "<a ". However, there is a case where it starts with "<noautolink><a "
  3. It's written in old style -- "use vars" instead of "our", preferences in the plugin topic. Those oldness should be removed.
