phenny/begiak ethnologue plugin

completed by: mattr555

mentors: Jonathan Washington

Make a phenny plugin for use in begiak that looks up language names and codes on ethnologue and returns basic info matching the search: language name, iso 639-3 code, where spoken, total number of speakers, and url to main page on ethnologue (note that irc text is character-limited, so it should be concise, e.g. "12,500,000 native speakers" could be abbreviated as just "12.5M L1"). This should work kind of like the .wik and .iso639 plugins (feel free to steal code from those—note that the .wik/.awik plugins chop text (rather well) to fit in a single irc message).
