Salut Yves

Thanks for the pointers. I will add musicbrainz to the list of lingvoj 
users.
MDB folks just sent me the data regarding their links to lingvoj URIs, 
allowing me to figure the most used ones.
Have you something similar available?
The list at http://dbtune.org/musicbrainz/all/language is cool. I put on 
the to-do list to link those URIs from lingvoj based on the labels and 
ISO codes, which I should be able to retrieve using the SPARQL endpoint.
