I don't even think that changing the meaning of LINGUA to mean "all
the languages supported" is a good idea. You should set another
variable for that.
Perhaps someone familiar with the new i18n/l10n stuff can please
clarify to me:
* I can understand why we need a variable holding the set of known
languages, but why not use another variable for that? Or perhaps
LINGUA would become obsolete, so why not recycle it?
* Is it meaningful to ask about a "primary" language?
* Dn't we need character encodings in LINUGA too?

It breaks at least *.sh and documentation/Makefile.
I've been asked to change the way the documentation Makefile is
invoked such that it builds documentation for all known languages....
I'll go ahead and do that.
