No, you are thinking about the LANGUAGE variable.  The LANG variable
can only contain one locale, while the LANGUAGE variable can be a
colon-separated list of language/locale codes.

It is not too hard to implement.  I once did part of it for
boot-floppies.  But I believe it is better to rewrite debconf and
cdebconf to use gettext, and perhaps make a small version of gettext
to include on boot floppies.
