This script fetches Wikipedia articles (currently supports around 30
Wikipedia languages) and displays them as plain text in a pager or
just sends the text to standard out. Alternatively it opens the
Wikipedia article in a (possibly GUI) web browser or just shows the
URL of the appropriate Wikipedia article.
