That would mean that every *.po file would have to contain the name
of every other language, and for every new language that's added, all
other *.po files would have to be extended. Besides, if a user can't
read a language name in the language's own writing, he/she probably
won't understand that langauge, anyway ;-).

Please try the attached patch.
It changes the "Setup/OSD/Language" menu to only show the languages
that actually have a locale. Any other language menus display language
names if present, three letter language codes otherwise.
