While the keyboard settings can be changed on the fly through either
setxkbmap or the libxklavier python bindings  - the language settings
cannot be changed without a process restart. One possible solution is
to conditionally run the introwindow as a separate process, and call
the main sugar-session from that. (the display manager does the
language choosing/setting for GNOME/KDE)
