Subject RE: [lang] i18n package proposal

"Math" does not need to be localized in a lot of places, but
exception messages should be localized.  This is a common thing
that people miss.  If i am in italy, using this product, i would
expect the exception messages be in Italian, not English.  So, in
general the support for additional locales should be there in any
api product for ANY strings it uses which might show up on a ui
screen or the console.

'math' needs to be localised??

sounds like a bad thing. surely the thing that uses math should be
worrying about that.
