Tsk tsk, being English-centric. Don't you realize that the Italian
wikipedia can't refer to an English WP image directly, but has to
upload each one to it:WP specifically? We have thousands of cloned
images by now. The Commons is actually an anti-fork that will
make all the images accessible to all WPs equally.
