Oooh - I have some algorithms for automatically guessing (with a very
high success rate) which languague a given piece of text is in.  If this
would be useful, I could look into implementing it for use in this
situation (once my current work-overload eases ;-) ).

With a bit of work, I could probably make a library which you fed a
piece of text, and it returned which one of a list of languages that it
knows it thinks the text is in (or "none" if it doesn't recognise it).
I need this for some other things I'm working on anyway...

Would this be useful?
