And the Middle East.  The display of certain flags here is can be a
bit...interesting.  I understand the desire for pretty icons, but having
the wrong icon show up in front of the wrong person in the school I
teach at could have some very unpleasant effects. (And, yes, we are
running Fedora on our workstations, so this isn't a completely
theoretical problem)

So, please, leave the flag icons out of the main packages.
