The majority of questions would likely be in English, but then we all want to try out our Esperanto too... and it seems silly to limit to just those two languages.
Would questions in any language be appropriate, as long as they have something to do with Esperanto?

It isn't silly at all. Stack Exchange is a
de facto English-language network so we do not allow posting in other languages. But for a site geared towards learning a non-English language specficially, encouraging folks to post in a full-immersion environment is a well-established way to help folks learn that language. But that doesn't open these sites to posting in any language… any more so than we would allow non-English posts on a site like Stack Overflow (which incidentally has an international team creating sites explicitly for that purpose).

this is tricky. do we expect anyone learning esperanto to learn english first in order to ask questions about the language?
if someone has a problem translating an idiom from a native language to esperanto, i don't think that translating the problem to english first would help. at best maybe a mix:
how do i say: "ich liebe dich" in esperanto?

As commitment is going up, maybe it's time to commit also to allow at least posts in Esperanto. I don't know who decides this or how, but a guess is: by voting.
