I wish to propose a small change to the language system of 1.3 series 
Geeklog that will aleviate the problem of incomplete translations.

The change only requires a small format change (which can be handled by any 
good editor's search and replace quickly).  Leave the english.php as is and 
always include the english.php.  Change the format of the other language 
files from the format of

$LANG_PL00 = array (
    'some string' => 'some string',
etc .....


$LANG_PL00['some string'] = 'some string';

In lib-common (or a plugin's functions.inc) check the language and include 
the file if the language is not english.

That way phrases missing from the translation will simply be replaced with 
the english equivelant.  This would allow partial translations to work 
without errors.
