<language> is, at t time, one language_name and only one.
Yes, of course. I meant (leaving aside all the complications of where
`language' gets inserted in the path), given an original .:foo:bar, and
if this potential language searching is enabled, then it could either
Or it could search:
Both way seem to have advantages and disadvantages. But anyway ...

it-is an argument pro or con?
As Walter said, it means I don't understand how we can implement the
idea in practice, since the files aren't organized that way. So I guess
I agree with your original point, that it would be potentially useful to
dynamically influence path searching as a document switches between
languages. Perhaps it could be done by doing all the path searching as
usual, but prefer matches which include the language name to those that
don't. Then it wouldn't really matter where they were in the tree, if
all the language-specific files were segregated under `french',
`german', etc. subdirs.
Besides the latin1.kbc example, are there other existing files/packages
which could be helped by doing this?
