English appears to be the installer's unchangeable language. Now that the installer uses MythTV's architecture, it contains the necessary tools to tokenize every string and allow native speakers to translate the installer text.

LinHES-config: add support for selecting the lang/country during install.
The lang is then translated to a locale which is then applied to the system by mv_locale.

The lang->locale lookup is done inside mv_locale with a static dict.

Further to this, the option to choose a locale would be nice (or to detect/infer it from the time zone?). Post-install, I change my system's locale to en_GB by manually editing /etc/locale.conf, but it ought to be automated.
