This seems to confuse people using non french locale as reported by a
brazilian translator on IRC.

Some work was done on translating http interfaces but I am not sure what
can be done for lua.

Querying the locale from .lua code and having the .lua scripts use the
translation if available?

> a = {fr="bonjour", en="hello", C="hello"}
> tr = a["fr"]
> print(tr)
> tr = a["en"]
> print(tr)
> tr = a["pt_BR"]
> print(tr)
> print(a["C"])

That could duplicate translating effort since the translations would be
separate from .po though.

Why do we ship this in VLC builds?

It should be available on addons.videolan.org and I am not sure if it
should be in vlc.git

(p.s. I didn't have the mail in my archives or in gmane so I answer to
the patch extracted from git, but this was committed to vlc.git back then)
