Due to a change in Scribunto for Lua, expand() will no longer work on special tags,
including <gallery>, <ref> or other costly extension tags (except "#tag:") or special parser
functions which are converted to UNIQ markers starting and ending by an ASCII DEL character ('\127').

mw.text.unstrip() now ONLY expands and unstrips "<nowiki>" tags, and completely kills ALL others
markers without expanding them to their generated HTML!

The actual full expansion of stripped tags can occur only in MediaWiki after return from Lua.
@see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Scribunto/Lua_reference_manual#mw.text.unstrip

For this reason we only get an empty list of subpages, and we can no longer bypass the costly
expansion limits of "#ifexist:" or costly calls to mw.title.new() by using the Special:prefixindex
parser function...

It is also not possible to use frame:callParserFunction() to process "Special:*" parser functions,
even if they are converted to "#tag:Special*" in Mediawiki, they are stripped in MediaWiki,
but they not found by Lua's frame:callParserFunction().

As well frame:extensionTag() cannot be used and generate the same error in Lua (tag "special" not found).
        params = expand( frame:preprocess( string.format('{{special:prefixindex/%s/%s}}', name, params) ) );
        params = string.gsub( params, '%b<>', function(tag) return tag == '</a>' and '\n' or ''; end );
        options = {}
        for k in string.gmatch( params, pattern ) do table.insert( options, decode(k) ); end
        return options;
    local subpages = get( title, options, pattern );
    return function(title, last)
        local page;
        while true do
            page = table.remove( subpages, 1 );
            if page ~= nil then return page, last; end
            options.from = table.concat{ title, '/', last };
            subpages = get( title, options, pattern );
            table.remove( subpages, 1 );
            if #subpages == 0 then
                return nil;
    end, title;
