[sword-devel] Localized language names - a suggestion

Referring to http://www.crosswire.org/wiki/DevTools:confFiles
the only language related element is lang itself.

This means that when a front-end encounters a new module for which it cannot
yet provide a look-up for the localized language name, it will show Unknown
as the name of the language. That's what Xiphos does, for example.

As a fall-back position, might it be sensible to allow the conf file to
optionally include the localized language name in addition to the lang

This would be processed as follows:

If the lang identifier can be looked up, use the look-up value.
If not, then if the conf file includes the localized language name, use
Then if not either, fall back to using unknown, as at present.
