Actually, it seems KDE 4 uses real gettext to do it, and uses the
// Point Gettext to new language.
setenv("LANGUAGE", language, 1);
// Locale directories may differ for different languages of same
Maybe just using 'setenv("LANGUAGE", "de", 1);' will do what we want,
without need for setlocale()? :)
I have to go now so I can't check that yet.
