Well the form I want it in is the correct form. "ll" is not a valid
language code setting, "ll_LL" is. But I had been thinking that the
boot-floppies were possibly setting this in /etc/environment -- if
you're just setting it in dbootstrap_settings, its not going to do
anything right now. At least, base-config does not do anything if
LANGUAGE is set there.

Should I change it to do something? What?
