Hmm, one could imagine a configuration file (or environment variable, or a
entry in an existing TeX-related configuration file) where the user can
specify an ordered list of preferred languages, defaulting to the system
locale (or a default list) if empty (I don't know how the notion of system
locale is implemented in Windows systems...). I guess the hard part would
rather be to get the database with correct entries for the languages...
