Yep; it looks like what Frans said in #311021. I changed choose-mirror
to use country codes as the untranslated choices and to add
Choices-en.UTF-8 and Indices-en.UTF-8 automatically generated from
iso_3166.tab. The code is a little hairy because it needs to calculate
the inverse of iso_3166.tab and apply that as a mapping to all the
msgids in iso-codes .po files, but it works ...
