We could as well set the defaut language of GDM to French. I'm sure
there are several persons out there that are not French but can read 4

Maybe it will annoy _some_ non-french speakers. But I'm sure it is
unimportant for some as well. 

It is nonsense? Sure, it's clearly nonsense to underestimate i18n
