There's little problem with that: currently in xorg 6.8.2 and earlier 
the name for layout would be "Ukrainian" but in xorg 6.9.0 and later 
it'd be "Ukraine"
And I don't think doing this something like the code below is acceptable:
if( xorgVersion >= 690 )
    translation = i18n( layoutName.prepend("Name=") ).remove("Name=");
    translation = i18n( layoutName );

I'd rather create new *.po file with country names extracted from 
kdebase_deskto.po and then insertCatalog() it leaving all i18n code as 
it is now.
It'll be cleaner and faster solution.
