We would like Fennec's locale options to be decoupled from the underlying OS locale selection.

That involves:

* A UI for making an election. Bug 917480, with reuse from Bug 881510.
* Facilities for switching locales, either the hard way (restarting the browser) or the soft way (runtime swap). This involves solving some performance questions, too.
* Ideally: facilities for downloading locales at runtime, so we don't have to ship them all.
* Reach goal: l20n support. If we're moving outside the realm of R.java, we should target enough modularity that we can switch to Mozilla's next-gen tooling.

This is a meta bug to track these components.
