Touche.  I was equating "internet user" with "someone with internet
access".  That, broadly defined, is the statistic that this thread is about:
"getting Wikipedia to the ??? people who can't access it".  Apparently that
??? is significantly less than 5.2 billion, but more information on the
demographics of those people would be helpful.  In fact, if there are a few
people seriously interested in this, maybe we could start a focus group to
better define the problem and come up with a half dozen proposed solutions.
