(cc'ing Carl Trachte since he's done much of the management of the
non-English pages in the wiki, and catinsunshine, the translator.)

Took me awhile to figure things out, but here's what catinsunshine did:

   * Copied the BeginnersGuide page to Beginner's Guide to Python
   * Translated that

So, it turns out he was technically okay, but there was no indication in the
page name that it was a Chinese translation of the original BeginnersGuide
page.  I just renamed it to BeginnersGuideChinese and added appropriate

We should probably try and wrangle up some people who will keep the various
Chinese language resources in shape.  Any ideas?
