I have NO opinion on the matter, but PURELY as a
Wikispecies was implemented as a portal, after the example of the German

all the individual articles inside the WP, maybe named
[[Species:Whatever]] -- would that be a compromise that people might be
more happy to accept?
This project is about indexing 1 or 2 million species - in addition
Wikispecies was intended to be a language-independent project, so in which
Wikipedia would you want to have it? And who would want to have 2 Million
database entries scattered over Wikipedia?
However, I start to think that this Wikispecies project is not worth the
trouble. If people feel that they must leave Wikipedia just because this
project is started then I tend to say forget it.
