Hi Nicholas,

This is cool. Is there any plan to support other languages of Wikipedia?
I have tested your code with ja.wikipedia.org, and it looks working
well [1]. It may be a good start to provide dbpedia for each language.
For instance, a URI for a Japanese resource should be
http://ja.dbpedialite.org/things/xxxx or something like that.
