Follow-up Comment #2, bug #53516 (project gettext):

> To put it in another way, it makes no sense to have en before any other
language in the LANGUAGE priority list. Ever. If you want the display language
to be English, which is always present, why making use of LANGUAGE at all? 

This is valid when en_US is the default language, which I give you is probably
true in 99% of the cases. I don't object to it being the default, I just don't
want to assume. Maybe some projects would like to change the default for
whatever reasons, and in this case it would be nice to be able to declare it,
with that being set to en_US as default (no need for other projects to call

Does that seem reasonable?
