Yes, Wiktionary is not perfect. People unhappy with it are encouraged to 
edit. :) Alternatively, if someone produces suitable word lists in 150+ 
languages from higher quality sources, I'll be happy to use them.

Indeed, the situation of Serbian, Croatian and Serbo-Croatian on 
Wiktionary is super-confusing. If it's too hard to get consistent output 
we'll just skip them.

True. This is easy to do in PHP with the ICU libraries but I've yet to 
find a python interface (as with 
<https://github.com/mitsuhiko/babel/issues/89>), anyway we'll add a 
sanitisation of the word lists in a way or another.
