Isn't Basque also spoken in France?

Bangladesh I think; possibly India as well.  Don't know the country
code for Bangladesh.

                 ^   ^

I think this is an Indian language too.

If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say Kazakhstan.  ;-)

Probably India and Pakistan both.

Would it be overkill to allow mapping one Windows hex code to two locale 
codes, eg. 0x0446 -> ("pa_IN", "pa_PK")?

Better not bring up Kashmiri -- if you thought the politics of spelling
English was touchy... ;-)
