Surely, we can do with basedisks.sh hacking. But, it makes the script
more complex and dirty.

Now we not native english speakers want:
	+setting LC_ALL or LANG.
	+executing a suitable terminal emulator.

And we can add other functions to it. Easy!

If we have i18ned console tools, termwrap is a very good choice.
It's better than every tool considers terminal emulator for users.

And then.... we can merge termwrap and sensible-x-terminal-emulator.
It provides us more unified i18n terminal environment.
