I wouldn't mind...

Actually, there's only one link to it :)

That was me :) It can be committed.

WML/ePerl seems to think (figuratively :) that any kind of text on STDERR
means the script is failing, and aborts the build of the whole file, and
consequently, the whole rebuild.

Perhaps error status of subdirectories should be ignored (by putting a `-'
in front of those $(MAKE) -C $@ lines in /Makefile.common).

BTW japanese/News/weekly/2000/1{4,5}/index.wml were failing, so I modified
/Makefile.common to ignore errors in the generic build rule. What I didn't
notice is that japanese/News/weekly/Makefile uses its own generic build
rule :)

I was able to work around 2000/14/index.wml problems, as it seems the
translator copy/pasted a few lines but only to the 80th column :)

However, 2000/15/index.wml I couldn't decypher. weblint is rather useless
when it comes to parsing Japanese text (because it includes characters <
and >), and I couldn't manually find any errors, it was 3AM :/
