Bug#593718: live-build: Using more than one language in boot menu not possible - attached patch as an idea

Subject: live-build: Using more than one language in boot menu not possible - attached patch as an idea
Package: live-build
Version: 2.0~a23-1
Severity: normal

*** Please type your report below this line ***

Thanks a lot to Daniel (dba) and all contributors for live-build - great job!

As I need to create a live image for more than one language I have extended a bit the code to get it working.
It is more like an idea how it could be implemented .. not a finals solution (I used bash in one place *_*).

Due to required additional options (like e.g. --bootappend-live_ch etc) I have hardcoded them in "config" however a such solution I used in "binary_syslinux" would make more sense.

Details like in my posting in #debian-live:

Please let me know if I can help.
