Okay, what not just make a static list of non-latin1 languages which
have special requirements, and install those requirements from
dbootstrap? As said, the new debootstrap has the --include=... option(*).

base-config could check the locale, run the apropriate program and
restart itself afterwards. This means: load fonts for latin* and koi8*
locales, or start the special terminal programs for Japaneese and

If the apropriate program could not be started, the locale will be
reseted to C.

(*) This will fail with basedebs.tgz, which does only contain the base
packages. So the user should only be prompted about installation of
additional localisation packages if the needed package can really be
located in the source tree.


Uuuuhps! Wo is' se denn?!?
