Speaking about computers, programming etc, I hardly understand
why people won't need to learn English if Emacs is localized. They
need to learn it anyway, needn't they? Hence, there is not much point in
localizing Emacs, unless you want to make things more complex. But is
the expense really worth it? I am afraid not. There are more important
problems to be solved, like printing international characters
correctly (htmlizing a buffer doesn't seem to be Ok, the output may
be ugly). This is, of course, my personal opinion.
