In short, you are using these languages as a weapon in your fight to get
your favorite tool in through the MediaWiki developers - as long as you
don't implement my thing, I'm not going to allow any new languages. Firstly,
you are not the one to decide what the developers must do first and what
later. And second, even if you were, prospective Wikipedians are not the one
who should be the victim of your petty fights.

I regret that you are on the Wikipedia languages committee when you are
willing to sacrifice Wikipedia languages for the, in your opinion, greater
good of MediaWiki languages.
