Yeah the instructions weren't entirely helpful beyond the superfluous "devs
don't care at all!" type stuff. I'm tempted to throw it back to NEEDINFO.

@Pedro - you mind putting it in NEEDINFO and asking for more information
(locales, dictionaries installed, etc... etc....). I think this is user
error to be honest but I could be wrong. I think if I put it back to
NEEDINFO the users involved will just go on a tirade about me ;)
