We let the underlying wx library choose the default, probably from 
GetUserDefaultLangId. Actually, for most users starting pgadmin in their 
native language is the best choice. At least, we got far more complaints 
when we did not use the default than now (you're the first).

Good!

We had this near 100 % limit for 1.0, i.e. all language we're currently 
distributing are at least complete for 1.0 (and are at >=75 % for 1.2). 
Currently, of the 36 supported languages we have 3 which are known to be 
unmaintained because we have the previous translator's feedback, and 
some 9 more without any feedback from the former translator, presumably 
non-maintained too.
Even the partial translations should be somehow usable, at least 
allowing the user to navigate to the options menu to revert the default 
setting to some other language.

For 1.3/1.4 which we're probably releasing quite soon after 1.2, it's 
planned to implement some language update support, to cope a little with 
translations that haven't been finished at release time.
