As with everything on devmo, status pages should be localizable. I think we want
at least the following status pages:
 * 401
 * 403
 * 404
 * 410

We might want to add some 5xx pages as well, though I doubt if they are ever seen.

I had a nice idea for the 404 status page. Besides the things the mozilla.org
404 status page already has we could enhance ours a bit with XMLHTTPRequest. If
we register for a Google Key we could take the request URI, remove all
"nonsense" parts of it and then send a query to Google using javascript and
dynamically put them on the page. (Of course, the query should return pages for
devmo alone, perhaps mozilla.org and wiki.mozilla.org as well.) This way we
provide a more user friendly page for people who like to guess the URI.

But we might want to move this plan to a separate bug or WONTFIX it directly.

The results of not-found pages on MDC are already localized, no?  I think this is FIXED by the move to MW.  If there are specific cases in which we send back a non-localized error message, please file on them individually with details.
