Yes, but language-chooser does not allow the user to select "C". So people 
who would like C currently probably end up with "en_US" and we did not 
want to run l-c in that case.
I would guess that people installing servers generally want to have full 
control over how things are installed and not have anything "silently" 
configured for them.

Sure, so maybe after locale-chooser is fully implemented we can allow l-c 
to be installed allways. We will have to talk about this again then.
