For the Sarge version of the installer this was done by the package 
localization-config (though probably not for en_US as it was disabled for 
en_* locales).

However, because of the integration of base-config into the 1st stage of 
the installation, the old localization-config is no longer usable. A 
rewrite has been delayed because of personal circumstances for the 
maintainer, but it should be available again before Etch release and the 
plan is to also support en_US.
