--What is it:

Language driver to give ability have whole system in English, but be able to
type and see in Cyrilic languages (such as Russian, Bolgarian, Serbski and co).

---What the problem ? Why it need it ?

Default set of language drivers in AmigaOS4.1.x expect that when you choice any
language driver in prefs:locale, then:

 -- All system messages use locale of language you choice.
 -- Set global codepage, to give you ability to type with refering to keymap you
choice in prefs:input.

Some time, some of us want to type/see our native language, but do not want to
translate whole system to it. I.e. some time we want to have whole system
non-localized , but be able to type/see russian, bolgarian, serbsky, etc which
use cp-1251 code page.

While it can be fixed in the prefs:locale by adding "Only set codepage, no
system translate ON/OFF" entry, we currently just make a language driver which
is pure copy of English driver, just with codepage set to Amiga-1251, which give
us ability to have whole system in English, but be able to type/see in

--- How to use:

 1. Put english_Amiga-1251.language from binary directory to your
LOCALE:Languages/ directory
 2. reboot
 3. in prefs:locale clear all preffered languages and choice: English (cyrilic)
(that our new one).
 4. save, reboot

Now your system still in english, and you able to type and see in cyrilic
language of your choice from prefs:input (russian, bolgarian, serbski, etc)
