I am also interested in localization too. I thik, it is OK to made stable 
version, but it is not so big change. I think it will be possible to 
made next version after this with localization support. The 
templates are very good start and next what we need is some 
function like 
def get_localized(text)
 return text

We can suply this function on all positions and after this we can 
think about realization of this function. Standart distribution can 
have this function and our localized can have some other.

I will post patches, where will be solved header problems of 
templates, but it is difficult, becouse when they will be included in 
further version, they can be unusable, becouse the source code 
can be another.
