On the Requests site, someone dropped a similar critical note, proposing a 
Wikijunior project. Moreover, this was the original aim of the proposer, 
wasn't it? What about trying to reanimate the simple-project by mutation 
simple.wikipedia.org into en.wikijunior.org and creating a website 
de.wikijunior.org rather than einfach.wikipedia.org?

I propose that we try to raise these two wikijunior projects to adulthood 
first, since too many projects at once will lead to a certain chaos. On the 
other hand, it's just children who are usually unable to read another 
language than their native one, of course.
