I need to second this.

Additionally, the new implementation doesn't work on the Mac. I'm using a German MacBook Pro (German as in, it's equipped with a German keyboard and I'm using the German time and date formats) with the default, system-wide UI language set to English (US). However, VLC always runs in German regardless what I do. This is not the intended behavior and contradicts with every single application running on my Mac.
