Which have shown time and again that forks/fractures/split offs/new
versions of Wikipedia don't work. They may find usage in a small
niche, but they'll never be a huge deal.

OTOH, the WMF saying "Hey parents/teachers/etc, we've got a version
with all the nudity removed so you can show your kids/students/etc"
would be massively popular.
