This is so lame that we'd be _much_ better off not showing it to the
user -- I mean, most people can intuitively understand that once created,
things will remain like that, but most will be quite pissed off (and rightly
so) if we force them at login time to make a decision out of which one
of the choices is totally broken.

Maybe just create a "language changer" utility that the use explicitly
invokes to do the switch, so that only folks that want to change the
language of said dirs (and I'd expect them to be in the minority!) would
have to deal with it. And being invoked as an explicit migration, it can
also move the files as an explicit step that may involve the user for
further clarifications.
