Go ahead.  The current main page is unplanned.  Apart from spammers, I
think Evan P. has occasionally added a new link.  Feel free to
completely redo the main page if you feel up to it. :)

Just add translated pages and link them.  Wikipedia uses
[[language_code:page_name]] to automatically generate links to
translated pages on other-language wikipedias in the navbar.  I'd want
links to translated pages on the same wiki.  If anyone knows how to do
this please let me know.  If it can't be done easily just add something
like [[Exploatör|Swedish translation]] in the body (I guessed from
http://lexikon.nada.kth.se/cgi-bin/swe-eng).
