Gentlemen, my mom, age 50 (hexadecimal) years old, thinks wikis ought to
have "send this article to a friend" buttons like normal websites do.
Indeed, the flagship Wikipedia site lacks such basic equipment last time
I looked.

I would have told her "just send them the URL yourself, for that
personal touch", but since she's 120 (octal) years old, maybe it's time
to take a tip from our elders and add such a feature, without me needing
to do as much as even check to see if an extension already can do it.

If not a complete "Share (on FarceBook, etc.)", "Suggest" button, then
at least a simple "mail to a friend".
