I wish, when referencing a wikipedia article, to use a "universal" reference, that will link to a dummy page that will trigger a search for the correct version.
http://uni.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_Basic_for_Applications which would be linked to:
In this way, if just a single page is associated to that universal referece, that would be the page to be displayed.
Otherwise a default language specific version to be displayed would be displayed, either based on IP range (countries) or user preferences (e.g. cookie).
You can contact me for more info.
Since names are very often localized or transliterated, this would have limited utility.
I don't think we'd implement this this way, though cross-language searches of other types might have some usefulness. Going to go ahead and mark this as WONTFIX since this isn't the way we'd provide such an interface.
