Support for LinguaLibre in Pywikibot

Lingua Libre ( is a project supported by Wikimedia France that have earned the coolest tool award 2020 (diversity).
I think it would be very useful to have Pywikibot support for both the wikibase and the wiki.

[pywikibot/core@master] Support Lingua Libre

Hi @Xqt: is the change already available (can we use pwb for Lingua Libre)?
Could you tell me what to type for the site = pywikibot.Site('language', 'family') command please?
Thanks @Pamputt for this patch :)

@WikiLucas00, both language and family are "lingualibre", so you can use

site = pywikibot.Site('lingualibre', 'lingualibre')

and yes, it is already available in the master branch.
