[Wikipedia-l] hiding interlanguage links by default is a Bad Idea

The English Wikipedia moved to Vector and the interlanguage links by default
are hidden under the title "Languages".

This is a bad idea.

It is perfectly OK to let people hide the interlanguage links if they don't
want clutter, but by default they should be shown. If by default they aren't
shown, a lot of people may never know that they exist at all.
