At least the ISO code letters in latin script.  Perhaps also 2 letters
in a script native to that language, for non-latin languages (at which
point we may not be able to rely on an outside standard and might
be starting a new set of 1- or 2-character abbreviations for languages
in their own script... perhaps we could find a language organization
that wants to take on choosing and maintaining such a collection.)
