So you are suggesting having the kernel output both English error messages
(suitable for straight dumping to /dev/console) and codes that klogd could use
to load up strings in language files? I think that this idea would work.
Klogd could then either pass on English strings or interpret the codes to
another language, or it could just store the symbolic information to allow a
log viewing program to view the logs in any language.
