Allow Extension:CiteThisPage to read page variables (to provide citations as "Dictionary of National Biography" on Wikisource)
Open, LowestPublic

Description

When someone visits a Wikisource page and clicks the "cite this page" link - say on https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Pogson,_Norman_Robert_%28DNB00%29 - we should be able to provide the citation as "Dictionary of National Biography" with appropriate, author and year information rather than what we produce programmatically. This would probably require that Extension:CiteThisPage be able to read page variables.
