    FP: It's not a problem related only to "terrible" languages, but
    FP: affects also who has a keyboard build for a language different
    FP: from the one that he uses, or who uses more languages.

So this problem should be solved.

    FP: Timezone is related only to the place where you live, not the
    FP: language that you use.

Sorry for my English, I've meant ...selecting language in the similar
(easy) way like e.g. selecting the timezone...

    FP: I yet proposed to create one package for each language to
    FP: install and activate what is needed, and to inform other
    FP: packages of the user's request to use that (those)
    FP: language(s).


    FP: The goal that I would like to see achieved under Debian is the
    FP: ability to use and switch language with the same ease with
    FP: which we can change editor or web server.

So would I.  Are we ready to start doing something with it?
