[Foundation-l] Please delete mo. wikipedia: Coherent proposal

I'm not proposing turning ro.wiki to ro-latin-and-cyrl.wiki. I'm
proposing a gadget that would seamlessly transliterate to Cyrillic *and
back to Latin again, if possible* -- that way everybody reads in their
own script, and (if possible) writes in their own script, while the
database remains 100% in Latin.

I do not envisage any support whatsoever for a solution that would
involve articles written in Cyrillic on ro.wiki -- that would be several
degrees worse than the (already annoying) status quo.
