Proposal to change default spelling behavior: honor language setting or provide a separate setting

(I've already bumped at this several times in previous TortoiseSVN releases, but only now decided to dig down a bit and didn't found anything relevant related -- in the mailing list archive nor in the bug tracker -- so here goes...)
I've installed TortoiseSVN version 1.6.3, followed by the Portuguese (pt_PT) language pack. Currently, this meant that my commit messages spelling started to be in Portuguese, which was not what I primarily intended: what I intended was the ability to use both English and Portuguese for spelling checks, depending on the project and/or default language setting.
I'm aware of the ability to set "tsvn:projectlanguage", which should naturally be used whenever specified. The proposal is that, whenever that keyword isn't set in a given repository, the local language setting  would be used by default. Another possibility would be providing a separate setting for this purpose. How do others feel about this?
By the way, the only way I could find to "toggle" the active spelling language was moving all the relevant files  to another location. If the above proposals aren't seen as a good idea, then providing the ability to at least override the active spelling language -- for example though a user registry setting  not visible in the user interface -- would be much more convenient. :-)
 Tortoise SVN language configuration is available in the "Settings" dialog, "General" item of the tree view, "TortoiseSVN" group, "Language:" label.
 In the Portuguese (pt_PT) case, this means moving "%ProgramFiles%\TortoiseSVN\Languages\pt_PT*.*" and "%ProgramFiles%\TortoiseSVN\Languages\*.2070.dll" to a temporary location, and move them back to "%ProgramFiles%\TortoiseSVN\Languages" whenever desired.
 Currently, TortoiseSVN stores the user settings in the registry "HKCU\Software\TortoiseSVN" key.
