And similarly, Wikitravel. There is such a lot of duplication of
effort on city articles. IMHO, a wikitravel article on a city should
basically be a great big {{wikipedia:en:Paris}} followed by "the best
bars are..." and "don't forget to buy a metro ticket". There's plenty
of information in Wikitravel that ought to be present in Wikipedia as
well, and a vast amount of the opposite situation.
