Right, but how did he test this with gnu.org?  IIRC, the general
consensus was to rename all original articles to .en.html (or
.html.en?) once we're ready to switch.

Unfortunately symlinks will not work in this case.

This is www-discuss material, although only the GNU sysadmins manage
the web server configuration.  I am going to initiate such discussion
(preparation to switch to MultiViews) once I figure out what are the
missing bits (from GNUN's perspective).

My bewilderment was that multiviews cannot "localize" SSI #include
directives or random <img> attributes, because there's no (sane) way
to determine which directive to transform (in the former case -- for
images it is completely out of question, I think), and such
transformation happens before the whole page is being served to
clients.  Anyway, I may be wrong.
