It is great to link people to their native language wikipedia article,
and good to see a use case for wikidata.

But is there a way to make this work all the time, for all articles?  Host,
externally to OSM, a script
that processes your browsers language preference tags and tests wikipedia
pages in order, eventually
returning a redirect to the best match?

In my case that would bring up English first, but if no version of English
is available, German:

An example header from a browser:
Accept-Language: en,en-gb;q=0.8,de;q=0.5
