I'm posting via web from a galaxy far away, so, please,
excuse any spelling or formatting glitches, if any.

The industry is changing so rapidly that it's just impossible to keep 
up with the pace without fluent English (read-only at least).

Re Russian manpages - I would preffer a separate distribution,
perhaps with LC_MESSAGE messages.  Something like


Tus l10n efforts won't get in the way of regular Lout releases.
In general, the point of i18n is making l10n feasible and lumping
l10n into the main distribution seems impractical to me.

I don't understand.   The only scenario that I can think of that
this might be a problem is when you use those misfuckingencoded
Cyrillic fonts that claim StandardEncoding instead of proper afii*
names for Cyrillic glyphs.

Lout is perfectly ok with correct Cyrrilic fonts. Misencoded fonts
should go to hell, the sooner, the better.
