Localization

Fennec bugs filed on multi-locale builds, bug 519682 for one with dependencies.

Help would be welcome on testing locale matching on Unix, both in terms of the list of locales on the devices (bug 519696, as well as the general matching heuristics in bug 518809, which seem to have been last maintained in 2003.

Discussion on localizations without owners continuing in .planning, but good news is that we've got new volunteers wanting to help out with Mongolian.
