WikiWho can do all of that, but it takes considerable effort to build
its databases from the dumps.

It would be great if the Foundation could support more of the
mediawiki-specific tools they build on top of. There is a lot of
expertise in The WMF for building tools across all the languages, and
an official Foundation app depending on a third-party tool which only
supports five languages is going to get some pushback down the road.
If the Foundation supported it, it would be less work to fold it in to
a Mediawiki extension properly, so it doesn't require a
browser-specific extension to run, too. It should really be part of
the API.
