Ooh!  Do, do, let's!

(For those of you who never read Enid Blyton as a child, the above means i think
this is a good idea.  :-)

Here's what we should free it from:
- commercialism: Making money at the expense of wider distribution.
- ethnocentricism/linguacentricism: Concentration on Western European languages.
- egotism/parochialism/translation theory centricism (?): "My translation is
better than yours" syndrome.

I'd be happy to host a web page on my less-than-high-bandwidth site.  :-)

1 Cor 9:18 for the theme verse?  :-)
