Actually, I think the _() is coming in the sender's preferred language
if they're a member, but the list language if they're not.  You're
right that the help.txt template comes in the list language.

I think this is a simple fix, so I'll check it in.  cmd_help.py needs
to get the help.txt from the sender's language if they're a member.
