Thanks for moving this close to completion.  I hope finalization goes well.

However, It found Special:UsersWhoWillBeRenamed totally useless at
Wiktionary, as I'm sure it is at any mature project.  Only 25 names appear
at time. On Wiktionary the first page only includes names using exclusively
exclamation marks.  It takes several pageforwards to get to the first "A".
It is not searchable.  There is not even a count of how many there are in

I'm not sure why the list is provided.  What is a use case for it?

It would be useful for those reviewing entries (articles) to have lists of
old and new names for contributors (with unreverted contributions) so as to
take advantage of hard-won knowledge about typical user contribution
quality, etc.  Are there plans for this?
