Nice! I love that someone has finally settled the size-in-volumes
debate in a somewhat... direct... fashion.

Incidentally, the largest print serial I'm aware of is the 'Serial
Set' of American official papers; it currently runs to around 14,000
volumes - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Congressional_Serial_Set

So we're half-way there.

If we take the reasonable guess that enwiki is about the same text
volume as all other Wikipedias put together, then we're probably just
about to overtake them...
