What happens when someone creates a node with only numbers in the node name?

    Ah, it takes preference over node name rather than node number (so you get taken to the node called "666" rather than node 666 when you link to [666] etc).
      So, that means it's still safer to use the [id://666|my title] notation. Pity. That means this change is nearly useless for text in nodes, although it's fine for CB chatter.

        I'd have to say that nearly useless is a complete overstatement. It's helpful for quick browsing from cb chatter, and how often do you see nodes named by Numbers? In fact, It seems that the only ones that would challenge this would be people who name their nodes full numbers which is absolutely ridiculous since it doesn't give a descriptive title, and probably won't get much attention. Just my 2cents
