I understand the problem. I used LinguaPlone a bit.
I don't think it's possible to show neutral pages in a translated
folder. For me it's a different folder, so different content in that
Maybe I'm wrong and I don't see how to do that too.

But I would prefer the other option, which is to have the translation in the same folder. This is because only part of pages will be translated, and when a translation is not available, it will show the page using the fallback (default) language. Or this is my understanding of the alternatives.
