Note that the newt frontend has exactly the same problem: if a character 
is not in the "needed characters" list for a language, it will not be 
displayed correctly.

I see no reason to treat this issue differently in the graphical installer 
than in the regular one. The team and translators just need to make sure 
that characters they need are included in the font files. This may take a 
while to get right and may lead to the occasional minor bug, but I would 
not expect major problems from this.

(BTW. I really like how the graphical frontend just tells you which glyph 
is missing.)

Cheers,
