Summary: Allow "other authors" of an extension to be localized
                    in Special:Version.
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.18-svn
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: i18n
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Internationalization

The Exension:Interwiki For instance has a list of authors shown in
The English version of it end with " and others"
If you switch to another language, the "and" is localized, while others" is

This is because list separators and "and" are insterted programmatically when
the page is rendered, while "others" is included in ths list verbatim, as if
another name was meant. Of course this is not so.

Trivially replacing " 'other' " with " wfMsg('something') " does not work.
Thus, we must introduce a special marker for 'others' in the list and
handle it in the redering program code as well, where it can be localized.
