Bug#560045: localechooser: fails to not add de_LI in languagelist

Quoting Frans Pop (elendil@planet.nl):

Indeed. That part of the code dates back to times where we were using
language lists extensively: each language had a languagelist. This is
no longer thecas and the few that still have one have it for valid
reasons (Norwegian wanting to fallback to Danish and Swedish and
Brazilian Portuguese falling back to "pt"....I even wonder if that
last one is still needed and what case it is meant to solve!).

None of these will trigger the possibility of a double entry in the
language list, so I think that the problematic test can be dropped.
