* localechooser: Use grep -a to make sure grep sees our language list data
as ASCII and not random binary since it contains some glyphs for language
name translations. Fixes at least one crash in Ubiquity. (LP: #1551285)

* Resynchronise with Debian.  Remaining changes:
- Add a localechooser-data package containing lists useful for packages
that create automatic installation scripts.
- Always support English, unless preseeded otherwise.
- Simplify use of locale-gen using the new command-line argument
facility in Ubuntu's locales package.
- Add encoding field to languagelist file and use the full SUPPORTED
file rather than SUPPORTED-short.
- If the language question was already marked as seen and the answer
didn't change, then don't recalculate the locale.
- If OVERRIDE_SHOW_ALL_LANGUAGES is set in the environment, display all
languages regardless of frontend.
- Cancel any locale preseeding if the user changes the language.
- For cases where selecting a different location may imply a different
dialect of the language, i.e. Portuguese and Chinese, take care to set
LANG and LANGUAGE to something reflecting the language and LC_NUMERIC,
LC_MEASUREMENT, and LC_IDENTIFICATION to something reflecting the
- Create skeleton locale-langpack subdirectories for each language being
installed, so that accountsservice knows to offer the
incomplete-language-support prompt (LP: #1307983).
* Add Breaks for system-config-kickstart and casper due to change in the
languagelist file format.
