IMO, having British English and American English as options is 
completely acceptable.

There is one problem with the list as we have it now: the languages are 
sorted alphabetically when C locale is used but the order is not so 
obvious any more. I think the best option would be to sort the list on 
run-time, or select the language from a list similar to the list of 
identities. Opinions?

I think it is not *too* hard.
