I guess with this we could have an menu entry that would allow changing the 
language / country settings on a program-by-program basis? If so: yes, please 
do so. This would fulfil one of the longest standing wishes of the 
translators (and some edu people).

Problems always was (according to Stephan) that it was unclear where such a 
standard menu entry should go in the end. Any ideas on this?
