This problem is also very relevant for Partman, which uses columns both in displaying the partition table and in other dialogs.

In the case of the language-chooser the vertical translated name alignement can be obtained by using a two-columns GTKTreeView List, anyway i suppose an hack is needed to both split the string in two and then to return a correct return value. Since the most the gtk frontend gets closer to be really usable the most i would like not to make gtk.c please confirm me the new two-columns handler is really needed.
