I'm not sure if I agree with this. Even though I'm Dutch, I always set up my
systems as basically English language systems and select en_US as language
and Netherlands as country. But I _do_ want support for accented characters
and the Euro sign.
So I would like to see locales installed and the configuration questions come
by, at least in a medium priority install (which in Beta 3 it does not).
