If we're going to start getting picky about English in the official
releases, and
having multiple variants, I'd suggest we first clean up the existing
English to a
specific variant so that we have something to work from, rather than the hodge
podge that's currently in /prog/en (it's currently a mixture of en-NZ/GB, en-FR
and en-US). The best way to do that would be to have some kind of official
language dictionary for library terms ...

Fortunately, there's a  free Dictionary for Library and Information Science that
we can avail ourselves of: http://lu.com/odlis/. Would anyone be interested in
'cleaning up' the English language strings in accordance with ODLIS?

Also, w/respect to en-NZ, isn't that the same or nearly the same as en-GB?
