Simple tagging for Wikipedia Links. Filter is aware of the current language
of the session and points as a default to the same idiomatic Wikipedia.

Basic use

    - Direct tagging:

        Tag a word apending [WP] will provide a direct
        link to that article in Wikipedia when published. Example :

        Ethnomethodology[WP]

        (not working - need more work)
        to tag a sentence or expression, use insecable spaces to
        separate words (Ctrl+Maj+Esp in most situations) within
        the locution. Example :

        Yoshua[^s]Bar-Hillel[WP]

    - Indirect tagging

      To point a distinct article than what the tagged word whould point to,
      extend the [WP] tagging with an additional parameter. Separator is |
      (pipe). Example :

      Ethnological[WP|Ethnology]

    - Pointing another language

      You may use a third parameter to change the idiomatic space of
      the Wikipedia response. Example :

      Cheese[WP|Fromage|fr]
