Usually I'd agree with you, except that we're translating the
MediaWiki extension on betawiki so that it can be used on all
MediaWiki installations.  I'm sure there's a Hungarian wiki (for
example the Hungarian chapter) out there that might want to use this
extension, and just imagine how happy they'd be when they realize it's
already been translated by a nice person!

That being said, we might want to provide this option.  I'm CCing
Siebrand so he can tell us if this is an option.
