At issue is that by creating new languages now without getting them
localisation, we provide them with a substandard service in the first place.
It has been proven hard to rectify this.

So we are choosing out of two evils. I am quite unhappy with the result but
it is one where multiple parties can effect a change. In the end, the amount
of effort needed by the developers is the same. It is just that creating a
language file should be part of allowing a new project in the Incubator,
failing that it has to be done and some localisation has to be seen done
prior to a project getting the royal treatment.
