Please indicate which features of these extensions you need to use; both are
potentially very expensive.

The desired features are listing the top few pages in a category by date (mostly
for maintenance tasks) and simple category intersection. Categories on the
English Wikisource are small, usually under a few hundred pages, so it should
not be as potentially expensive as it would be on en-Wikipedia. A closer
comparison in terms of category size would be Meta or en-Wikinews, where the
extension is already enabled.

DynamicPageList2 has many features that we could find all kinds of uses for, but
DynamicPageList would be enough if DPL2 is much more potentially expensive.

There is a similar request at bug 6758: 'Activation of DynamicPageList2 on

Removing DPL2 from the subject as it will never be installed (bug 8672)
