Interwiki links in main page in allmost all wikies are customized. It
is practically not possible to include all 250+ interwikies to
considerably short main page. In articles, taking up closly related or
our second language to top of the interwiki list will sure be an added
advantage for readers. Ultimatly wp is sharing informations to its
readers. For eg. For Malayalam, a list starting from English, Hindi,
Tamil, Kannada, Sanskrit, etc can be handy to many users than
providing a list starting 'not even heard' languages.
