So what? If you're going to go out of your way to accomadate
a small regional perversion of language semantics, then your
"fetish of multiculturalism" is even more
dangerous than i have previously thought!

SPECIAL CASES ARE NOT *SPECIAL ENOUGH* TO BREAK THE RULES!
    
This "idea" that software needs to be written to accommodate
every language of the world is complete nonsense. I would
suggest writing software that targets *only* the modern
world. Those who refuse to be a part of the modern world can
suffer the troubles of forking the code into their ancient
systems -- and i will not loose any sleep over the issue.

PROGRESS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN PROTECTION OF DELICATE SENSIBILITIES!
