Why not abolish the language-selection binding, take the default
argument for `help-with-tutorial' from

(or (getenv "LC_MESSAGES" ) (getenv "LANG") "en")

and put

"If you'd like to study this TUTORIAL in a different language, click

near the beginning of the TUTORIAL.  Later, when somebody's got some
time, they can set up a toolbar with a flag (or flags, for
multinational languages) for each language, and you can get rid of the
ugly hyperlink.  (Conditional on toolbars enabled, of course.)
