If we assume that people first log in using their base language then you
can set a gconf key and leave it at that. I guess if the login is in a
new language you can prompt during session init for a rename.
Having two nautiluses (nautilii ?) running at once in different
languages is going to get silly otherwise, as is having multiple
applications in different languages (which isn't uncommon because
multi-lingual users often prefer to do certain tasks in certain
Or you make them all symlinks and hide all but the right one for the
language so that applications all still 'just work'
