I am not convinced that this is useful (yet). I have been generating
some red-link lists for the upcoming international edit-a-thon about
Art & Feminism on February 1st, and I tried out this tool to see if I
could come with with lists of women artists already in other projects.
With Reasonator I see 503 female persons and 760 male persons. Not
very helpful (yet) for generating red-link lists.
