So I did a little bit more digging, realizing I started in the wrong
end with serving - "no" and expanding with "nb". Here is a new patch,
it still serves Norwegian(no) as bokmål, but only claims to provide
Bokmål(nb). The rest is probably due to some setting in Apache
somewhere which equates the two. (Feel free to change it if you find
it - Leif Halvard ;-) )

According to my high-school diploma I'm fluent in both languages,
although seeing all the spelling errors when I fixed the patch the
second time around makes me doubt I can write either, I would leave
the translation into Nynorsk to someone more competent. I did a little
bit on improving the language as well this time around.

Eg har ikkje skreve nynorsk seriøst sidan eg måtte gje ut en eksamen i
2004, så eg trur det er betre om td. du freistar dette - Leif Halvard.
