 I don't agree, having several config variables is not a user-friendly
solution :p Moreover, VLC has not been released since the option exists
and I guess many people that could be annoyed are not end-users and/or
are reading the mailing list, so I don't think it is a big deal.

 I guess the right thing to do would be to use a string_from_list, with
a list containing all the available translations (including 'none').
