Strange. I seem to distinctly remember that, yesterday on Wikimania, many
us agreed that Wikipedia is an incredibly valuable resource to
the world, and that it is our mission, as a community, to protect and
improve it, and to make it available to even more people.
Your suggestion to sabotage that resource, even if it's just (!) in German,
because a few long-time editors there now have to (once) click a checkbox
to *not* see the Media viewer, strikes me as somewhat incompatible with
The discussion about how the activation of the Media viewer on German
Wikipedia came to pass should not affect the reader, no matter what.

really like the Media viewer, as it is.]
