In fact, it's right.

I don't understand your point of view.
The FrontPageArabic was just added, so all the 21 pages _must_ be
updated, no matter your method or my idea.

But in fact, a 'copy-paste' is simpler.

Do you think we can wait for it using our current implementation, or
could we try another system: I remember Salokine Terata tried
automatic handling of translations links... oh... wait... forget about
it! it's not usable without a consistent translation namespace.

Thank you for your answers.
