Bug#457793: release-notes: etch upgrade release notes, chapter 4.5.3: mention localepurge, too?

Package: release-notes
Severity: wishlist

Hi all,

I'd think it'd be useful to add a note about localepurge at the
"4.5.3 Make sure you have sufficient space for the upgrade" chapter
(purging unused locales freed a whopping 240MB on this machine here
on Debian stable).

Possibly with a note saying that one should only do this if very
space-starved (purging locales might cause understandability issues),
and thus maybe list this suggestion last.
