well pane.hints just happens to be the only thing doing hints right now.
It is a bit too late to change this for this release.  So nowtofigure out a
way to make apps that install a single .hints file and apps that would
install many depending on language work correctly.  I guess gnome-hints when
it finds an xxx.hints file could first see if $LANG/xxx.hints exists before
reading it in.
