Wikipedia page lookup should load the right page

Bug Description

The wikipedia lookup function should load the right page. For a band, e.g.
Queen, it should first look for 'Queen (band)' and only if that does not exist
it should load 'Queen'. Same goes for albums, songs, etc.

It appears that upstream won't be fixing this bug, I'm guessing since there are so many corner cases.

1.4.5 is expected to act much better in this regard for English speaking users, since it will try "Tool (band)" before "Tool" Part of the problem is that different languages will have different suffixes than "band".

See the upstream bug report for more information.

I'm using a pretty recent SVN build of Amarok ( <3 days) and I can confirm that it does the correctly behavior of searching for 'Queen (band)' before 'Queen'. I'm marking Fix Committed, since Amarok 1.4.5 will have this change included.

Let me know if it doesn't work once 1.4.5 is released. Thanks.

Amarok 1.4.5 has been released with this change in both edgy and feisty. Yay!
