Patrick, checking out your link I cannot switch languages.
the url show both  a setlang= and a lang= parameter
but only one should be there, usually setlang=
to set the preferred language as cookie. with
the page always displays as 'de', even though the cookie may be

I am not sure about your problem/request of having a pagename
hardcoded or given as parameter in markup (:selectlang:)
The markup checks the current page to see if a page attribute
'languages' is set  (with a list of languages in the page).
The idea is that a page may have no languages implemented, or not all,
so there will be no switch links shown for non-existing languages.

Why do you need to read the list of languages available from a
specific page rather than the current one?
