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: 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?
