Again, it's all or nothing. You can't take a few "offensive" flags out and
not expect to be flamed to high heaven by the people who stand by those
symbols. If there is to be a package of flags, it should be *every* flag,
and up to distributors / us as to whether they're shipped or not.

The solutions raised that make sense include a flag icon theme component,
localising icons, and a couple of others. Some may be overkill. But we can't
be halfarsed about it.
