Well, it has more than 3.7 millions transclusions… See also <
Just asking: would it play nicely with our AnonymousI18N script?

AFAIK, AnonymousI18N handles the following :
* Language selection
→ Handled − that is kind of the purpose of the Universal Language
*Selector* right ? ;-)
* Language suggestion, based on « data from cookie, referal url & browser
"referal" means that AnonymousI18N can detect that your are coming from
it.wikipedia.org, your interface should be in Italian
→ What about ULS ?
* Language “uselang” persistency, regardless of the previous
Meaning, if landing on Commons from a URL with ?uselang=fr (obviously from
templates on projects, but also from links everywhere [people like me who
always tweet/write links with a uselang ;-)]), the ?uselang=fr is set for
all outbound links, meaning language persistency.
→ ULS does not appear to do that from my test on TranslateWiki.
(Arriving from <https://translatewiki.net/?uselang=it>, interface in
Italian ; clicking a link, interface in French)
