CustomSidebar extension for MediaWiki 1.14.0

I had the need for custom sidebars definable on a per-page basis in MediaWiki, and I didn’t like the current options out there. Luckily MediaWiki 1.14.0 adds a new hook right after the sidebar is generated, making it easy to replace its contents. You can either pull contents from another page or define the menu items on the page itself.

Not at this time, though possibly soon.
