That's why I added that, while it's a fun option to enable for some of us, it would ultimately be confusing for end users "For some reason MonoDevelop freezes on 'Burninating the Peasants...', is this a known bug?" etc

Why not making a new reticulate locale instead?

yler at onion:~/sources/mono-project/monodevelop> LANG=rt_EN make run

This would not take up ANY additional memory whatever, nor will it
require ANY source patches ether. It will just work on the definition
of a rt_EN language for MD. Your ENTIRE work on setting this up will
be a new set of *.po files. And it WILL require explicit installation
of the new locale for it to work.

Didn't RedHat did something similar to test their multiple languange
installer? They came out with the red neck locale, a badly spoken
english dialect that is used by some peasants in the southern United

Jesus bless you,

Note 1:
This will work, although it might require setting a different
environment variable, like LOCALE. I am not sure, you get the idea

Note 2:
What is rt_EN? It means reticulate_english, the locale you are
inventing. You can define this to be any value that suits your needs.

Note 3:
You have to be sure to copy all the strings (that you don't alter)
untouched from the us_EN locale into the rt_EN locale, though.
Otherwise you might get unexpected results.
