I have written a script for Pywikibot that changes the page language where
this is possible. It is available on GitHub
It would be cool to have this added to the main Pywikibot code, but the
script would need a review by someone who knows more about the Pywikibot
code than I do – I'm not aware of all coding conventions, methods, etc.
that are in play, so it is very likely that there are some (or many) things
that should be done differently in the script. Any feedback would be
