Actually, my architecture should be expanded a bit to make it work for 
multiple languages.  Currently, there's a function called maketext()
in the Utils module that takes a relative filename and a dictionary.
The file is pulled out of the templates directory and contains %(key)s 
for interpolation of the dict.

What we'd probably want to add are subdirs inside of templates for the 
various languages.  Then each list would have to have a language
option which would get passed to Utils.maketext() so that it could
select the appropriate file to use (e.g. templates/en/cronpass.txt
would the be English text, templates/hu/cronpass.txt would the be
Hungarian, etc.).
