Comment(by phobos):

 Translations were orthogonal to the migration. The real goal is to
 separate content from the structure and display of the website. If we're
 going to keep a generated, static website (which I believe we should do)
 then wholly separating the content from the rest of the website should
 make our lives easier. This could have a secondary effect of making
 translations easier in both right-to-left and left-to-right languages now
 that you don't have to have single lines with wml and other commands
 within them.

 One of the things I'm blocking on is figuring out a navigation system that
 doesn't rely upon tags inside the content. Or at least one that relies
 upon standard hyperlinks inside the content, when pointing to other pages
 in the site. I'm open to ideas for all of this. I started doing this in
 gitorious to let others clone, fork, and commit back to the project some
