Speaking of fallback, what happens when a translation is partial?

(Most translations are going to be partial. Keeping a translation
up-to-date is an awful lot of work)

I would suggest to have the default translation as a "C" language, or
somehow hardcode the "en_US" as the fallback default without any
need for configuration.

(gettext falls back to "C" when there's no translation).

Also, how does this affect a little statically-linked Asterisk?
