I use en_AU, but have several German albums and a couple of French
songs. I'm sure lots of people with non-English locales have songs with
English titles.

This means that basing it on the user's locale won't work correctly. To
do this properly either requires a human to indicate what language it is
in (either the user in RB, the tags, or MusicBrainz).

Well, unless someone writes a program that listens to the song and
figures out what language it is in :)

Never criticize a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. That way,
if he doesn't like what you have to say, it'll be OK because you'll be a
mile away and you'll have his shoes.
