I'd like to see better fallbacks. eg I want to store stuff for "de" with
only occasional variants for "de-AT" and "de-CH". Ususally "language
packs" are bound to a complete locale, but for German it'd be great if
there was a German pack with only "add-ons" for Austria or Switzerland
(though the Swiss might complain about the ß). I guess that this makes
also sense for eg fr-BE
