In principle this is fine, but the changes to main.c and release_notes.c
are sufficiently inscrutable at a casual reading to make me a bit
Would you mind sending a patch that contains only the changes necessary
for multiple language code handling, without any reorganisation of the
rest of the code? I think that would make it easier for people to
+ if ( LOAD_TRMFILE("/etc/messages.en") != 0 ||
+ LOAD_TRMFILE("/etc/messages.trm") != 0 ||
+ LOAD_TRMFILE(TRMBACKUP) != 0 )
That doesn't look quite right to me.
