Nah, I was being silly.  People complaining on Klingon on _this_
list does not argue for this to be in "C"; it just means the
i18n.projectlang for this project is "C".

How about _not_ reverting it and doing something like this instead?
I suspect that we may need to delay the call to git_setup_gettext()
in a similar way that we delay the call to commit_pager_choice(),
but that is a minor detail people smarter than I can surely figure
out ;-)
