Well, there's no such thing as "one" belgian language, but belo-russian
definitely is not quite satisfying ;-)
Other than that, and since we'd better not choose between Dutch and
French (not to mention German), English seems like the best choice for
a product like knoppix, hence my suggestion to stick to "C".
"be" is still useful as a cheatcode, though, in order to select the
right keyboard layout. BTW, for the console, "be2-latin1" is slightly
more complete than "be-latin1".

Speaking of the "lang" keyword, the "cheatcode.txt" file does not
actually document all supported countries. The latest knoppix-autoconfig
script has support for be,bg,ch,cz/cz,dk,fi,ja,sl and uk besides those
mentioned in the help.
