I think this is ugly (in general, I understand the reasons for Chinese).
If I have a program saying "Some Swedish question? (Y/N", I get annoyed,
since "Ja" (yes) starts with J, so that's the natural thing to type. But
if most non-English users don't want this, I'm going to drop it. There are
more important things to concentrate on:-) BTW, there is an issue for this
at the moment: #2155.
