	The DictWiki, could allow us to link translated pages in
a way that they could be handled similar to "Content Negotiation".

	I don't think we can use that in this way, we will probably
need to split it by Language, anyway, using the subdirectories with
same English name across the wiki.d.o is similar to what www.d.o is

	MoinMoin support Macros in Python, we could also think
about having something along these lines ([[ShowTranslatedPages]]).
