IMHO there shouldn't be any support for non-english in the regexes for
the following reasons:
- we have to do translation ourselves, make has gettext support, but I'm
not sure gettext supports to find the "original" message from a
translated one. And that still leaves out gcc-messages
- its slowing down the parsing, unless one has to specifically activate
the regexes for his language, which introduces quite some code
- maintenance nightmare
- translations of error messages are itself often useless in public
forums unless you happen to have somebody speaking the same language
So to conclude: A simple switch to activate the "forcing to english" and
thus disabling the jump-to-source is all thats needed.
Expect a letter from a friend who will ask a favor of you.
