Automated caching of helpful intros from Wikipedia

For each tag you will get one of

  1. a one-sentence intro + link if it’s in Wikipedia and if it may confuse an average reader (eg “web cache”);
  2. just a link if the concept is available on WP but too simple to bother with (eg “cache”);
  3. nothing if there’s no corresponding WP entry (eg “reservatory”).

That’s the concept, but it will tend to the over-helpful until it realises how clever you actually are. I’m reservatorying to preëmpt begging letters from Mr Wales. If you create a WP entry for “reservatory” and wait a couple of hours you’ll have spoiled this example, but it’s a free world.
