This was part of my reasoning behind bundling some core extensions with

ParserFunctions is already included, but I was going to bundle the
following extensions in 1.21:

* Cite
* InputBox
* LocalisationUpdate
* SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi

As far as template bundles, I think this would be better served with an
extension like LocalisationUpdate that could fetch a new copy of the
desired templates from your chosen Wikipedia.

Another area that could benefit most non-WMF wikis is a way to import
some documentation for how to *use* a wiki.
