I know nothing about that. Perhaps the person working on newinstall 
would like to provide a summary of its capabilities?

I do hope this option is not going to become the default. I very much 
like having all the Bugzilla files in the same place. IMO this only 
causes trouble - if one file can't be certain where another one is, then 
it's going to cause other problems than this.

Then they can edit templates to indulge their funniness. We could make 
the links match a regexp, to make it easier for them.

But do we need to incorporate it into the links? My take is no - they 
should set up content negotiation if they want multi-language help.
