[maemo-community] Adding extra languages into Welcome screen

you may noticed that Maemo 5 Welcome screen (which appears after instering 
battery or flashing) does not show all extra installed Maemo 5 translations.

Problem is because, osso_startup_wizard (Welcome screen application) read 
language table from library libi18n-locale-resolver0. And that libray read 
languages from binary file /usr/share/i18n-locale-resolver/lra_language.data 
(and not try to check which translations are installed)

I created small shell script which can modify (add/delete) language strings 
(e.g en_US) to that binary file and thus Welcome screen show/hide other 

Script is in Extras(-devel) package locale-resolver-config 
and install file /usr/sbin/locale-resolver-config

For example adding Slovak language (which is not by default in Maemo) call:
$ locale-resolver-config add sk_SK
and to remove
$ locale-resolver-config del sk_SK

Maintainers of extra Maemo 5 translations could modify their postinst/postrm 
scripts to call this script for adding/removing their language to/from Maemo 5 
Welcome screen.
