at OOo it worked like this: Hamburg releng did localized builds for all
languages, then the NL communities did QA and (hopefully) approved the
release, possibly at a later time than the en_US release.  builds that
aren't approved aren't available for download by end users.

so the actual binary code in all the localized installation sets was the
same, just the UI resources and such differed.
