OK.   I'll give it some more work first.

Is there anything in the patch that should make it worse for non-latin
languages?  If base-config is only used during first time install, and
users of non-latin languages just stay away from setting LANG and
LANGUAGES in /root/dbootstrap_settings during first time install, then
my patch should be safe.  Is this valid argumentation until some user
of non-latin languages fixes the last bit?

Any idea how I could detect if the locale is non-latin?
