	Um ;-) in theory yes, but in reality no - having a duplicated ODF file
for each and every translation (duplicating all the XML, all embedded
images etc. etc.) bloated our install sets to some huge size for no good
reason :-)

	Weelll - so you're both right; but really we need to grub about inside
the templates themselves to add some improved translation scheme I
think; now we have fast native XSLTs - I guess we could use the native
XSLT filters to allow the templates to be self-standing, and yet adapt
to the locale nicely.

	But - your task is primarily the Java -> python conversion I guess :-)

	All the best,
