Hmm, bugzilla has a strange sense of humour:

Why is this a problem?

If it works and we are all happy with this feature, it would be a pity
if we'd hide it. Adding a configure option (with default="disabled"?)
would make sense IMO.

I did, and it looks promising. The menu is hard to read, but this can
be fixed with a proper CSS entry.

It looks that I have found a minor bug:

I tried it with ALL_LINGUAS="en de fr" and got a menu with 2 entries
("English Deutsch") for all 3 languages. Just had a quick look at the
stylesheet: it seems that your tokenizer failes (last tail ["fr"] does
not contain $splitstr).
