Ah, yes. I do believe VLC once had a Norwgeian bokmål interface, but it
seems all strings have gone fuzzy over time. 93 strings are marked as
translated as of now, with 3049 being fuzzy.

Well, except there is no language file to be found. Ubuntu users' VLC
fell back on the Norwegian nynorsk translations. I guess we'll find out
when our man has gotten his fingers dirty :)
