And one more thing, if it hasn't changed in the meantime: if you're looking
at an article on wiki A that has no interwiki to wiki B, where B is the
"fallback language" for language A, Extension:ContentTranslation (abbrev.
CX) will subtly invite you to translate the article from A into B by
putting a grayed(!) link in the interwiki space.  If you click that, you
find yourself in CX from A to B.
