[Foundation-l] Montenegrin request for new language wikipedia

In short, there are two options:

- to make Montenegrin Wikipedia; or
- to make a conversion engine from Serbian, Croatian or Bosnian to
Montenegrin variant.

In this issue (which is related to political linguistics) the main
problem are preferences. From Southren Serbia to Istria all people
will perfectly understand each other if they are talking in their own
standards (in general, Croatian standard is a little bit more distant
then others). But, not so small amount of preferences makes
differences between standard languages. Plus, very good knowledge of
one standard means that you may talk with others, but doesn't mean
that you may write in other standard (even I have a good Slavistic
bacground, I have a lot of problems to write in Croatian standard).

And everyone has right to:
- call her/his language as (s)he wants;
- to be educated in her/his native language.

And Wikipedia is about those rights.
