Preference order for locale codes are:

ISO 639-1
ISO 639-2
Ethnologue (http://www.ethnologue.org/)

We intend to always follow OSIS locale conventions, which state that 
Ethnologue codes will be encoded in the format x-E-??? where ??? 
represents the 3-letter Ethnologue code in capital letters (though 
capitalization really doesn't matter here).

Some older modules maintain a former format for Ethnolgoue codes of 
xx-???, including the AleWiesler module.
