I've tried the extension today - unfortunately, it doesn't work for me:
After downloading bot MUTLILANG.PHP and MULTILANG.CLASS.PHO from
Subversion and adding
to LOCALSETTINGS.PHP, I've created the following section in my sandbox page:
    == Multilang ==
    regular text
    <language code="en">
    Some text in English.
    <language code="de">
    Ein wenig Text auf deutsch.
    <language code="fr">
    Un peu de texte en Français.
    regular text
However, all I get is blank lines in between the "regular text" parts
(i.e. not even the "<multilang/>" part works.
I haven't updated from v1.8.x yet, but I don't think this extension is
1.9.x-specific... !?
It's probably some kinda syntax error, but that's hard to check due to
the missing documentation.

I'd appreciate some input!
