I understood now. Anyway, I don't even know if that is possible at all
in MoinMoin (people with more knowledge on the matter, please let us
know). Or is that 'include' allowed? Does that work as transcluding?
That would actually make it better for the markup health which right now
I've converted into a mess (the front page news section).

I can create a different profile. Probably something like
DavidMorenoGarzaBot or similar :-)

I understand. Are more people interested into this? I mean, is something
working as hard as Mr. Johansen to keep this translated and updated?
