OK, I obviously wasn't clear enough: I specifically said interproject links 
/not/ interlanguage links. Each project should have its own logo (we are 
developing one for Wikipedia right now); Wikipedia needs its own, Wiktionary 
does too, so does Wikiquote and let's not forget Wikibooks. Those project 
logos should be internationalized enough so that they are usable by all 
language versions within the same project. 

The translated interface tells the user instantly which language version they 
are in.
