How is this redirect going to work?  As far as I know, redirect only works within one wiki.  Are you suggesting that the article will explicitly point to the zh wp, something like [[:zh:topic x]]?  This would make it very hard for anyone to find the link to replace once there is actually "topic x" written, since the WhatLinksHere feature does not work across wikis.

Is there any plans for a "sibling wiki", where redirect or some such feature will actually work?
