@@@ syntax to generate a property link #1855

Creating a property link (as to be used in infoboxes or by templates) within a wiki-text requires some additional work and even though it can be done it will not allow to take advantage of auto-property descriptions (displayed as tooltip etc.) or in future to change to a preferred label (based on the user language).

To generate a property link within a text or template, the special syntax [[Foo::@@@]] is introduced, where @@@ will signal to the InTextAnnotationParser to handle it as non-value annotation and instead output a property link as seen in the examples.

Going with the special syntax seems more appropriate (and is less work) than introducing yet another parser function.
