Hmmm...  Actually, the first file was russian.xml :)  Well, I am using xmlproc
parser, it does not check (without special pestering) the input encoding (by
default, xmlproc just works with input as a 8bit stream).  I decided to try to
make use of it.

So do you propose to have a separate file for every language?  Or do you want
to convert all files into utf-8?

I believe the loginfo script uses `mail' or similar command that puts into From:
field the name of the user under whom it's executed.  So unless I get an
account there (which I doubt is of any use :) or the cvs user is changed, we'll
get that `From: Adam di Carlo'... :)
