so we would have in /boot :

apps_fr
apps_es
apps_...

for each language ? doesn't that sound like useless and messy ?
Yes, I know right now we are going to use at most 3 or 4 languages on a
computer, but in a near multiuser future this will not be the case anymore.
As the locale stuff is brand new, it can break compatibility in some
aspects. Along with layout kit and some others, it should be made
representative of what the R2 API will look like. I prefer it clean and
well-thought than hacked-up toggether :)
