It is possible to support sub-dialects.  We already support pt and pt_BR for
Portuguese and zh_CN and zh_TW too.  I've occasionally been asked for English
dialects to add colour and internationalisation :).

What doesn't work so well right now is stacking those dialects, so that if
most of en_US works for you, you'd just need an en_GB for the few differences
between American and British English.  This might be something we could fix in
Mailman 3; it could make for a nice little contribution if someone were
interested in doing so.
