I think somewhere the thread detached itself into another section, and
something I wrote was misinterpreted.

I'm not saying you can't use Betawiki; far from it; you choose however
you like to organise translations, at your own will. I can't *force*
people to provide translations, and I can't *force* people to use one
method or another for doing something. "Standard" referred to how the
translations end up being patched into the extension; it's extremely
simple and not totally dissimilar to how many other extensions are
done. The only differences are there for (in my opinion) extra sanity
and efficiency, and more importantly (to me) backwards compatibility.

If Nikerabbit would like to add these things to the arsenal of stuff
he generously provides at Betawiki, so that they may be
collaboratively localised, then I'm certainly not going to say no, but
it's not anything to do with me.
