OK. Maybe it is even better to have localechooser completely untranslated 
rather than semi translated for languages which are not up-to-date as that 
should probably be sufficient warning to users that other parts may not be 
completely translated either.

But if we do this, then let's do it well and:

- also change the menu item as "Choose language" does not really fit with
  other option in the menu; "Select a language" would at least be more
  consistent with kbd-chooser (and better English), but a term to cover that
  we do more than language selection would be even better

- update _all_ dialogs, including locale selection

- stop using "choose", but use "select" instead (i.e. "Please select ...)

- improve the long description for debian-installer/locale as the use of the
  term "locale *parameters*" IMO does not make any sense

I have decided to commit my pending changes as this string revision is 
basically a separate issue from my country selection changes. As my changes 
introduce only two new strings which IMO are perfectly OK and consistent 
with other existing strings, I see no reason to further delay committing.

An extensive rewrite of existing strings can be done afterwards and should 
be discussed on the list before any changes are made.
