I said that I am interested in working on this, not that I am going to
do it all alone. Mostly because I am no expert of Debian Menu system,
and do not want to accidentally reinvent the wheel.

I read your earlier messages a bit wrong, I guess. Yes, there are two
separate issues to be solved:

 (1) l10n in XDG environments (GNOME, KDE, etc.);
 (2) l10n in non-XDG environments (Fluxbox, WMaker, etc.).

I was actually talking about (1) because, as far as I know, not many
non-XDG environments benefit from l10n. Although some environments, like
Fluxbox for example, do seem to support "longtitle" and UTF-8 encoding.
