There is no way to reference a particular directive among multiple 
ones with the same name by using the redirector.  
Mostly because additional module name would make the link 
almost as long as the full one, and this hardly makes sense.

If you want to send a link, consider using a full link instead.  
If you are looking for a list of directives (or variables) with a 
particular name, consider using the index pages:
