Whiteboard

I have created this patch[1] and we are using it in Mandriva with good results and good performance in the OEM Unit (for specific plataforms). I think this is the code will be merged soon. However, as fas as I can see it needs more testing:

 - What happen if a display hasn't got a .mo file?
 - Do you know any better way to implement this?
