Blue screens? How did that happen?

Looks interesting! The localization is definitely something we could do.

As for having the language packs use msi instead of NSIS, there might be
a few problems:
currently, the language packs are just 'copied' to the required
location. No 'uninstall' information is stored in the system at all. So
when you upgrade TSVN, the msi just removes any language dll's it finds.
If we'd use msi for the language packs too, the main installer would
have to actually uninstall all language packs before upgrading itself.
I don't know if that's possible.
