Yes. There is something called LC_PAPER and there are things call
locales that are meant for this.

What is the output of "locale" on your system?

Who are you to give such orders to volunteer developers? The day you
have done more than just one percent of the work done by the LO
maintainer in Debian (Rene, who you are talking to), or by the LO
developers, to make this software happen, then I think you'll be
entitled to point fingers and give lessons. Before this, I'm afraid
that your above sentence is....just inappropriate.
