I wholeheartedly agree.

About the "it's an English-only distro, put a disclaimer and stop bitching"
argument - I refuse to take such point of view. We should continue the
i18n-ization of Debian in any way possible. Just because Debian doesn't
completely support non-Latin languages (and apparently some Latin languages,
too :/ ), it doesn't mean such thing is not a worthy goal to pursue, and
that we should just drop it.
