I support having this feature being added to MediaWiki. Giving its popularity it's a bit odd to mark it as wontfix :)
If it cannot go into core, perhaps it can be added to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Awesomeness which btw, really ought to be included in the MediaWiki release tarballs.

I can't support bundling this extension, since I want MediaWiki to be less than awesome.
This seems unlikely; it would require the creator of Nyan Cat to explicitly release it under a free license, or at least give permission to use it here.
Why does this keep getting reopened? It would make sense to close this until the licensing is sorted out.
