I would prefer calling main_locale_init() from plugin_set_info(),
but would that have much of a performance impact for the plugin
manager dialog? I guess it's probably necessary though.

The other question is how to implement this with the PLUGIN_SET_INFO
macro so main_locale_init() is called correctly (and only when
necessary?) for all plugins.
