That sounds like a rather good idea, though I still see problems with

- You cannot have all language links on the front page. This will
  clutter it up beyond recognition. 
- You cannot "hide" links to other languages in a subpage. Okay, at the
  moment we only have a front page which links to "portal pages" (I'd
  say "Verteilerseiten" in german, no idea what it is in english) -
  linking to versions in other languages is easy from there and very
  obvious. But what happens when we have to have
  "frontpage->subportal->subportal"? No one will really find those
- You could duplicate those pages into the (lets assume es) es/
  namespace and link to the english pages when none other is available.
  Won't work, as you have to change a page in *all* languages if you
  edit a new entry.

That's a patch? It would be great for the HardwareList, if we can lock
down editing to the hardware template (and we could see how much spam
we'd get in a rather small area of the wiki) :)
