The request has been rejected as invalid. The explanation for
rejection is below:

According to the Language proposal policy, Language committee may
approve just a project which intends to be written in one language.
Thus, this proposal is invalid. If you want to create multilingual
Wikibooks, please create a page Multilingual Wikibooks and start
discussion about the idea at textbook-l. --Millosh 06:15, 3 March 2010
