You might want to add a reference to a talk I gave at the
LSM this year in Dijon:

Designing Unicode-aware Applications in Python:

It touches upon some things that you've already discussed in
the howto and also includes a few hints on howto to approach
i18n in Python in general (though this part is not complete -
there's only so much you can do in 60 minutes).

I'll probably do the talk again next year at EuroPython 2005,
CERN, Switzerland.
