Actually we have localization support tested and working, but have yet
to use it in any of our front-ends. Please keep in mind the installer
is still in early stages of development and since all our devs speak
English there issues like localization kinda get put on the back burner
until we iron out details like partitioning.

Technically we could support reiserfs if we wanted to, though it causes
some nice resize problems that agaffeny could better explain to you.
While I enjoy reiserfs, it seems that I am in a minority on this project
and most people consider it evil and don't want to support it. If you
would be willing to help support reiserfs for us, that would be most
appreciated by me.
