For people who have custom builds of Sakai fixing the resource bundles
isn't tool much of a problem, but this makes it harder for people who
run vanilla Sakai deployments to customise the interface.

A similar issue occurred for copyright options in the resources tool:


If there was an easy way to set locale strings from outside of editing
the original resource bundles then I think this sort of change would
be fine (although you still have to issue of changing meaning of
resource bundle strings).
