Well good point. I have no clue. At least Mac users I've talked with are
using Geany in LANG=C and are happy with it. Personally I don't care but
I was confused some time ago, too. This is the reason why we have added
the flag at all.
Having in mind that there is no solution fitting everyone's taste, I
suggest to change the behaviour of the flag in a way, to default to
default locale of the system and to allow to set some alternative lang
with the flag. But ... there is something in my mind that this wasn't so
