Please DO NOT DO this !!
I once wrote programs in an EXCEL-VBA version with german keywords.
The next version of EXCEL was only available in english.
It was HORROR and CHAOS !!
I'll never want live to see this again. I think that would
split the whole pyhton family.
Homepages, tutorials, info etc. abaout python in 
different languages -- very fine. But the python language
must remain P Y T H O N  and nothing else.
I'm a pythonusiast and I want to stay that further more.
