Yes. I asked Dmitry to choose a different language when he introduced
this into the packaging to create an additional binary package.
However, at this time Dmitry volunteered to care for this (and up to
know he did so). If this support would stop my solution would be to
drop the additional binary package (and thus goldendict support) because
I (as the only active maintainer out of the team) can not support this.
