why do we need to implement a special command to do this? 
this command is non-standard (not in the debconf spec)...  this seems
very much like a hack to me.

I'd rather have the language setting be read from the debconf database,
and have a mechanism to trigger cdebconf to re-read the debconf database
(e.g. when getting a SIGHUP). i remember there were some discussions
along the same lines some time ago.

will that do what you want?
