	This would be ideal, I think. But if we want it to be uniform, the
description should be taken out of the control file, and put into this
directory,the original description file should be named  "C" , 
maybe with a symlink pointin en_US -> C or something.

	Maybe having all translations as sections in a single file, so we
would not end up wasting I-nodes and disk space by having many small
translation files just for descriptions.

	Someone tell me please, where do the descriptions shown by dselect
come from? The Packages file? We will have to generate different localized
PAckages files too, right?
