Future version: consider boost::locale env. vars

If I can suggest Smile
There is boost::locale library for C++, not widely used, but...
In short:
setting env. variable LC_CTYPE or LC_ALL or LANG could extend PortableApps language settings to whole applications, not launchers only.
Please consider that idea.

Launchers Use This

Many of our launchers pass on the platform's language settings using one of these environment variables. Many of the GTK-based apps, for instance (GIMP, Pidgin, Gnumeric, GnuCash, etc). I'm not aware of any non-PA.c Format apps that are portable and support the variables, which is what this would affect. Are there many?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
