I have CC'd this party.  I am certainly willing to give i18n folks the
capability to write to the boot-floppies CVS area.   I can give out
accounts for this (not shell account), maintainer or not.

Someone needs to work out how we are handling this.  I think we should
have a i18n flavor for i386 at least, pick one of the kernels (idepci
or compact) for this purpose, and make it enable the language chooser.

I don't know if we need a different Japanese flavor specifically. It
would be a shame if so, but hey, if someone can do the work, it would
be great to have this support part of the "mainstream" boot-floppies.

Remember, we can continue to do "point releases" of Potato
boot-floppies even after Potato is released.
