Javascript en_* translations ignored if no en or en_us translations exist

Description (last modified by Tim Graham)

If there is no djangojs.mo in either the en, en_US, en_US.ISO8859-1 or en.ISO8859-1 directories, then the django.mo translation files in any other en based translation directory (such as en_gb or en_ca) will be ignored.

This is because of the lines:

       if en_selected and en_catalog_missing:
            t = {}
        else: #.... actually go on and build up the dictionary for the catalog.

Without an en or en_us translation, en_catalog_missing will be true and for something like en_gb, en_selected will also be true. This means that en_gb will never be loaded.

This error can happen often since much of the time you won't bother creating an en or en_us translation file since that is the main language you are building in.

I haven't used javascript_catalog before, but this does seems like a funny restriction. If it cannot be fixed for some reason, we should at least document it.
