    OR better search first <language>/plain.bst.

Ok, but where does the algorithm insert the <language>?  Going back to
TEXINPUTS, we have (for example):

TEXINPUTS.latex = .;$TEXMF/tex/{latex,generic,}//

So we would try

That seems potentially hazardous.  And then there's the question of
whether to try all the <language>s before the normal directories, or
intermix them (as in ./<language>, ., $TEXMF/...latex/<language>,
...latex, etc.).  Either way seems problematic.

Finally, in the current TeX Live texmf tree, it seems that
language-specific files are scattered everywhere ... ?
