The purpose of languagechooser is to ask the person doing the
installation about his preferred language.  This information can be
used to choose which language to use during installation and set this
language as the default language after the installation.  The first
part is required, the second part is missing in Debian but is present
in Skolelinux.

You will have to modify the default configuration for French, I think.
I do not want this functionality in the first version of
languagechooser.  In later versions, we can implement it as a low
priority question.

Good idea.  I added it to the README file.
