No matter what the project languages is, machine parseable part will
not be localized but fixed to "C" anyway, so I do not think it comes

My take on this is, if there is the project language, it should
apply to _everything_. Please do not introduce any per-command,
per-message, per-anything mess. Just set LANG/LC_ALL up and be done
