Do you mean 'fp.o/wiki/pt_BR/Extras'?  Shorthanding that kind of thing
is risky.  ;-)

MoinMoin does have some built-in language smarts, but I'm not sure that
they would cover all of our needs, so I think the subsections may be a
better idea.  Translators will have to be careful in their link creation
since short links won't work.  (eg. 'WikiName' in pt_BR will always have
to be something like '[:pt_BR/WikiName: Title]' and never simply
'WikiName').  I don't see that being a huge issue, though.

As MoinMoin is currently configured, users who have their browsers set
to a language other than English won't get the same FrontPage.  They
will get the 'FrontPage' of their native language.  Virtually none of
those pages have been created.  The French form has, but it isn't much
more than a link to the regular Extras section.  Either way we go, we
can use those pages to direct international users to the appropriate
translations.
