As far as Gerard and I have talked about this issue and I understand
it, it seems like a sensible policy to me. If you want a new language,
it should not be that difficult to at least prepare the groundwork for
MediaWiki localization before you start. If you cannot even get that
organized, how are you ever going to write a useful encyclopedia?
