It would be great if we could avoid breaking URLs that many people may have bookmarked already,
especially in an 'nl_code' group.

Perhaps the subdomains can be mapped to wiki sections, making for easy maintenance, but that
might not get them all.  There's also (non-)relative-linking among pages of the site to discover
and deal with.

OK, I'll be the first to add to this.

I suggested some time back, and given the technical details we'll be 
faced with in migrating a large portion of the current OOo web site to 
the Apache web architecture, I strongly suggest that all the native 
language projects front-facing pages be migrated to the "new" wiki. I 
don't know what any of them would think about this, but I truly feel 
this will make life easier for them in the long run. Given what some 
have on their existing web sites, I'm pretty sure migration to the wiki 
would entail far less time for them, and enable more convenient updating 
as well.

Some, if you look at the current OO.o wiki home page, some languages 
already have a presence on the current wiki.

This would of course, give them URLS of the form"nl_code"

rather than "nl_code"

but I have a feeling such a change would be ok.

Naturally, we should confirm acceptance with them for this.
