I just noticed that for all languages except French, langdefs contains
the same sentence-end definitions as for English.  When using
TeX-style spacing, this means that a larger space is automatically
used after:

   . : ! ? .) ?) !) .' !' ?'

However, is this behavior really appropriate for these languages?  I'm
only sure about German, and for German it should be the same as for
French.  What about the other languages supported by Lout?  Since
changing the language definitions on a per-user basis requires copying
the setup file, I think it would be good if the defaults were correct.
