I think the problem is - the locale abbreviations are only meant to be
there if the abbreviations are non-obvious, i.e. not deductable for the

First Corinthians

but not:



So, even those languages you listed as will not by necessity have the
"proper" short names. If they have, this is - strictly - redundant for
the purpose of the locale files (at least in their current incarnation).

I copy this into sword-devel as there are more readers there.
