Update cached article count monthly to avoid social unrest

Description

Update cached article count monthly to avoid social unrest

The link-based article count is now fast to update, as it doesn't
require page parsing as it used to until some years ago. However,
it's not instant, so it sometimes gets very out of sync. Then wrong
counts are corrected and users freak out as if Orson Welles had
announced an alien invasion at the radio.

We are sick of

  • users making Reedy waste precious time to run the script manually,
  • clueless discussions where we're asked to prove that no, there is no teapot in orbit around the sun.

Wikibooks is excluded because some subdomains use comma count which
is untested. Multilingual projects are excluded because nobody there
cares about article count and some are huge.

Depends on I061b1bd7 (rMWd70cceb5d466), deployed on all wikis on 2014-12-17.
