New toolbar button to insert wiki macros
Redmine has useful wiki macros such as "child_pages", "collapse", "include" and "thumbnail".
Despite the usefulness of those macros, not so many people know the feature because they are too hidden. Only people who read the detailed syntax reference know the feature. In addition, those macros are a bit long to type.
To resolve those problems, I propose to add a new button that assists users to recall and insert macros. Please see the screenshot below.

I've tested the patch and it works great. Really convenient!
I also have 2cts to drop. :-)
- If it's possible, it would be nice if we could add the macro description as tooltip.

I like this idea. In the future, we can extend the button to include Redmine links to different objects (issues, source, etc).
If we would follow this road would it make sense to have a Redmine icon for this button, yet?

- Target version changed from 4.1.0 to Candidate for next minor release
- we should find something else than the Redmine logo for this button
- as Bernhard said, it should comme along with additional information about the macro and the arguments that it expects. The macro name on its own is not so usefull.
