I think it's useful to provide the link to the wiki test case as a back
reference and for the developer to see/improve the steps testers are
following, if they're so inclined.

However, I suggested as a convention we just include (but not solely rely
on) including the link in the "STEPS TO REPRODUCE" section.

Thanks, Dave, for writing up the wiki page!
