Congrats to everyone involved in completing the French translations and
in expanding the language coverage generally. And a special
congratulations / thank you to Rémy who contributed over 1700 (no, that
is not a typo!) translations.

I do think this experiment has been worthwhile. Yes, there are some
users who prefer English to their native language but there are also
some users who find the translations helpful. The good thing is that it
is easy to set Tomcat up to work either way.

I wonder. Is there any value in any of the following:

- The ability to change the language Tomcat uses while Tomcat is
running? I'm thinking an option exposed via JMX and the Manager app.

- The ability to 'translate' messages. I'm thinking something that takes
a message in one language, searches through the l10n strings to find a
match and then provides the same message in an alternative language.
Finding an efficient way to do this could be interesting.
