You can still use the (proposed to be) deprecated I18N package from
Excalibur in existing products, while switching to Salt with all
current Excalibur packages.  Things will continue to run just fine
without having to do the work immediately.

Which is to help encourage to move on to the new code.  But it really
doesn't help to burn time and energy on something that nobody is
currently actively maintaining.  It's been months since any meaningful
change to I18N has been made.

Peter, how is the test suite on Salt?  I know it is nearly non-existant
with I18N.

Right, so for most users it won't affect them at all.  It would affect
me with the GUIApp application, but I am not really happy with the I18N
support in that anyway.

I may have to think long and hard about how it would make sense to do
for that type of application.
