No hard line. The question is: Do we expect this to be a succesful project, 
and help Wikipedia's mission to spread information? There's no hard limit 
for that, but that doesn't mean there isn't one. If I make a language 
tomorrow, should it get a Wikipedia? If I work on it for a year? If I get 2 
other people to speak it? 10 other people? 1000? A million? Half the world?
