I've made a system for this at CALS now, see I haven't added a system open to the public for adding this type of translation/background though, maybe next weekend (if you're interested). It's easy enough to restrict that list to only show translations to/versioms in esperanto... at the core of the matter though: it's designed so that anyone logged in can add a translation in any language to anything, so even if lots of backgrounds in esperanto suddenly spring up, you'd still have to choose which one or ones to use. Meaning, I'll still add a JSON-download or something, so that you can filter it yourself. But: not before next weekend, as I've spent most of this weekend already and tomorrow I'll hopefully spend some time watching Wall-E at the cinema (it's been sold out several days in a row!) t.
