I'm not sure if this is what you wan't, but you can set the list's
default language to English, and make sure that French is an available
language. Then users can set their preferred language to French.

The tricky part is setting the default language for a new member to
French. This would require implementing a new list attribute, e.g.,
default_member_language, or a really ugly hack to Mailman/MailList.py
in the ApprovedAddMember() method.
