--- Comment #14 from Ryan Kaldari <rkald...@wikimedia.org> ---
Implementing a 3rd or 4th gender (robot?), would actually be fairly trivial
(with the exception of one issue).

All it requires is:
1. Adding extra conditions to Language::gender(), or if you want to do it for
English only, LanguageEn::gender(). 
2. Adding extra options to $defaultPreferences['gender'] in
Preferences::profilePreferences(). If you wanted the options to be language
dependent, you could add a hook there and a hook handler to the language
subclasses.

The only tricky part is figuring out what the proper order of the values should
be in the i18n messages. Should 'unknown' remain the 3rd option or should it
always be last? Does this need to be consistent across languages? It would be
good to get the opinions of the i18n engineers on this, especially the ones
that work closely with the translatewiki community.
