Well, actually we have two English Wikipedias (en: and simple:) and
multiple "Chinese" Wikipedias (so far zh: - Mandarin, zh-yue:
Cantonese, zh-classical: Classical Chinese, zh-min-nan: Min-Nan, wuu:
Wu, cdo: Min-Dong). Also two Norwegian Wikipedias (no: and nn:).

I'm just saying it's not like the boundaries of languages are clear or
well-defined, and it's not like defining what constitutes a language
has ever been free of politics. Both which I'm sure Sabine is actually
aware of. :)
