I don't understand the whole issue here. I18n applies to cases where the
actual l10n is meaningful -- i.e. for system-wide stuff. Now, tell me what
kind of (schizophrenic, perhaps?) person would want to have a
locale-dependant _home directory_? If you are, say, Hungarian, you just
create a 'Videók' directory in your $HOME (or have it created for
you by some kind of 'Welcome to GNOME' script), and update GConf to
register that your video files go to ~/Videók instead of ~/Videos.
