If the object is already in the wiki, you can just edit its page, copy in
your changes and click preview to check. For new objects, I guess you would
have to run the whole wiki on your own computer to try - a bit too much
trouble maybe.

The way it works is that first the current module is searched for an object
with the name of the cross-ref you gave, if it is not found then it goes up
the chain of modules. If the object you reference from for example
numpy.mais in `ma` or in `numpy` it will be found, but if it is in
`numpy.fft` you
reference it as `fft.yourref`.

Please leave private objects at Unimportant though - besides indicating what
needs review the status is also used to guide contributors to the most
important docstrings to be done. Stuff only relevant to devs can sometimes
be marked Unimportant; that does not mean those docs can't also be improved.
