      Completely rework how we localize our browser. · 4a6fc859
      anonym authored
      Previously these parts have been spread out in several, heavily
      coupled hooks and static configurations, making it very hard to get an
      overview of how it all actually works. Now we instead do everything in
      one place, and generate things programatically as much as possible,
      which makes supporting another locale much simpler (just adding a
      single line with a few pieces of needed info!). Consequently this
      commit also adds better localization for every locale supported by the
      Tor Browser (added: ar, es, fa, ko, nl, pl, ru, tr, vi and zh_CN)
      instead of the euro-centric (w.r.t. actually adding localization) ones
      we had picked before. Also, we'll get build level errors for many
      types of errors, so they're caugt early.
      
      This commit may seem like a gigantic, non-atomic beast, but splitting
      it would be hard, and it actually mostly removes stuff. Its design is
      simple: We have a description file that, for each supported Tor
      Browser locale, has the extra pieces of info needed, like the
      localized name of the language, the parameters needed for certain
      search engines etc. Then we apply them to:
      
      * a templates for the amnesia branding locale file, and put in the
        relevant values there so the default search engine is selected, the
        correct spellchecker (if installed) is pre-selected, and our
        homepage is localized (if supported).
      
      * a template for each of the search engines we want to localize
        (currently Start Page and Disconnect.me -- we could do Google but
        most (all?) locales get a localized one from the Iceweasel
        localization packages) and generate localized ones.
      
      Also, following the Tor Browser's recent switch, we now use
      Disconnect.me as the default search engine, although we localize it
      for each supported locale.
