OK.  New thread.

I think it's simply impractical to be in more than one locale at
a time for messages.  For one thing, calls to the _() and
gettext() functions would have to be postponed until well after
the point they're called now, so that we could call them once for
each locale we're in.  So I'd think that SET OLANG would change
the language for all messages, regardless of where they're going.
