For me the idea that a text-search configuration maps to a
locale/language seems to be totally wrong. IMO an encoding/charset
could include several languages and a text-search configuration should
be mapped to an encoding/charset, rather than a language.  Apparently
this would not happen in the near future however.

Good thing is, text-search english configuration can handle multibyte
characters. So I can live with current text-search implementation.
