Link view permission

I'm using Confluence 4.1.4 and want links to spaces and pages to be visible to anybody, even if the user hasn't got view permission for the target.

This is the code:

<ac:link><ri:space ri:space-key="FOO"/><ac:plain-text-link-body>Bar</ac:plain-text-link-body></ac:link>

The user won't see "Bar" but only FOO. IMHO it would be even better not to display the link at all.

Is there a workaround that displays the page title (without using an exotic plugin).

Upgrading is not an option, as we currently have no resources for testing.

The (ugly) workaround in our case is to treat the links as external links.
