Constants for languages/internationalization.

This represents known languages (or, strictly, locales). Compare language.cpp on the client.

At present we don’t make this user-configurable and arbitrary (e.g. via an XML file to define languages), largely because it would a little complexity for the user, and because there’s not much point in adding a language to the server without adding it for the client, too – and the client needs recompiling.

Note that both Python locales (see e.g. locale.getlocale()) and Qt use underscores – e.g. en_GB – so we will too.
