 Who knows anything about right-to-left language support in Terminal?
I know we have it in Write, but that's totally different.

Hi Chris,
Several issues I was wondering about:
1. cmd.py appears only in terminal? If that's so we better make sure
it's not translated since most of the Linux terminal emulators doesn't
display Hebrew correctly, same goes for Farsi and Arabic (The only one
that supports unicode and bi-directionality is MLTerm).
2. Hebrew has several genders it can relate to, I saw that the user
can configure it's gender, that means we can provide 3 different
translations for some strings so they'll appear more natural to the
user, what i18n framework are you using?

Kind regards,
Yaron Shahrabani
