[help-GIFT] i18n-proposal

Hi all,
People are kicking me to integrate internationalization (i18n, 18 letters 
between i and n) support into the GIFT. As the main chunk of to-be-localized 
text comes directly from the config file, I suggest the following for the 
time being:

Each attribute whose value is to be displayed to the user e.g. 
"collection-name" will get some sister attributes with a prefix, that contain 
the suitable i18n information.

E.g. in addition to sending

collection-name="sauerkraut eating contest" 

we will send

i18-fr-collection-name="concours des mangeurs de choucroute"

The client does the filtering.

This will get us into the right direction, at least. The next step is having 
something in the configure-session that tells us what is the preferred 
language and doing the i18n sessionwise on the server side.

What do you guys think?
