I am current rewriting this extension and I should have a working version in a week or so. The good news is that I the new version I'm working on will be much easier to use. (hopefully) --Hapa 05:34, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
Inspiration for this extension was the ISBN feature that MediaWiki has. I wanted to use it to monetize my Wiki so I made a hack to the parser.php
While this worked it became a pain to maintain as I had to rehack the parser.php file every time I upgraded my wiki.
So I made this extension.
Please leave me feedback on my talk page User_talk:Hapa
What can this extension do? 
This extension provides an easy way to insert Amazon.com product links into your wiki pages making it simple to monetize your wikis
Notes on Current Design - Circa March 2011 
The BookSources page on a standard MediaWiki v1.16.2 displays Amazon Books correctly only if the ISBN-10 (1847198201) number is given and is expected to go for example to:
The same book's ISBN-13 (978-1847198204) number errors out but should actually go to:
This is only a search page that displays the book in summary form unlike the latter which displays it in detail form.
See It In Action 
You can see this in action on my wiki http://www.opentutorial.com/Make_fire_text_using_photoshop#Amazon.27s_Related_Products
Where "B001EUBSL0" can be any Amazon.com product number
This will automatically lookup the ASIN using Amazon Web Services (AWS) and return the following to your wiki page:
ASIN B001EUBSL0 Adobe Photoshop CS4
The link generated will include your own Amazon.com Associates ID number allowing you to get credit if a user purchases the product, or any other product on Amazon.com
Customizable Templates 
The extension also provides for customizable output via a rudimentary templating system. Allowing for greater flexibility.
The templates can pull the following variables from Amazon.
- This is the link to the product which includes your associates tag.
- This is Amazon.com's unique product number for the item.
- The name of the product.
- The manufacturer of the product
- Amazon's current price for the item.
