FS#2310 Don't allow "?idx=namespace" to generate index page
The action "index" generate a page with links to every pages on the wiki, using the search functions to do that. And for the namespaces, closed by default, we can open them by clicking on the link constructed with this ?idx=namespace which trigger an ajax event also using these search functions and this parameter idx. Everything works fine with this use-case.
The problem is with some searchbots scanning this index page and following every links on that page. This create a lot of complete index page generation, with lot of searches and our servers can't follow that charge.
A solution should be to deactivate the possibility to generate a complete index page with only ?idx=namespace and throwing a 200 error message. This don't brake the ajax call. But we can also change the way the ajax call work and suppress these links totally.
