[TYPO3-templavoila] RFC #9465: Additional hook to allow user postprocessing of available languages for translation

FYI: The attached SVN patch was committed.


It is sometimes needed to post-process the list of available languages, 
e.g. to disable some of them from an extension. However, as no hook 
exists for that, one has to XCLASS TemplaVoilà only to be able to remove 
a translation language.

The attached patch (render_availableLanguages,diff) adds a hook for this 

Additional Information:
When dealing with a website that should have different default 
languages, it is needed to create as website language the language that 
is normally defined as default. This is needed because the default 
language will be different on a subtree.

In this configuration, e.g. English which is default and French which is 
sys_language_uid = 1, an additional language English with uid = 2 should 
be created. When default language is English, then translation should be 
done for French (uid = 1) but English (uid = 2) should be hidden as it 
already is present as default language. When default language is French 
(thus uid = 0), English translation should be done with uid = 2 and 
French (uid = 1) should be hidden.

In addition, I attached another patch which allows this to be done 
without a hook but with an additional page TS setting 
(disableLanguages.diff) which does what I currently do with XCLASS or 
will do with a hook if the hook patch is applied. This page TS patch 
would do the job in TV itself without any need for an external processing.
