mozilla-locale-*: language selection by the LANG/LC_MESSAGES environment variable
I add a request about mozilla-locale-fr by Laurent Bonnaud:

I think it is a good idea, but the implementation is maybe a little
difficult. I have thought of a wrapper to call mozilla, which modify
the user configuration files before starting mozilla. However, I found
it is better to use the same solution for mozilla-locale-*.
What do you think of this request and do you have any other idea to
implement that ?
