I don't think an entire translation would be needed, but you could start
with say, all messages in listinfo.py and the listinfo.html template.
That would be enough to give us a sense for how well the web u/i handles
RTL.  You might also try some of the messages in admin.py, then take a
look at that.

I'd also suggest translating one or two of the command line scripts,
then seeing how well those work.  Follow that by some of the messages
sent to users over email and you basically have coverage for the major
touch points for RTL i18n.

Right now, I don't have a good place to expose the trunk publicly, but
I'd be happy to do some screen captures.
