[Translators-l] a gadget to hide apihelp

A little tip to translators at translatewiki.net:

I usually try to have the translation of several important message groups
to my language at 100% or close to it. Among these groups is "Extensions
used by Wikimedia".

In the recent weeks hundreds of new messages were added to this groups as
part of the Apihelp localization project.[1] Apihelp is generally a nice
thing all of which should be translated, but I found this overwhelming:
Apihelp is only useful to developers, while some important and highly
visible messages in projects like VisualEditor and Flow may get lost among
the hundreds of new Apihelp strings.

So I wrote this little gadget in my user space:

It adds a "Remove apihelp" link to the top personal bar near the Talk page
link. Clicking that link hides all currently visible Apihelp messages in
the translation view.

Feel free to copy it and to improve it. I just made it in a few minutes and
it may have bugs.

Again: Please *do* translate Apihelp to your languages. Don't use the
gadget to just ignore Apihelp completely - only to get through the time
until it's all translated.

Hope it's useful :)
