i18n settings file -- fixing awkwardness

Under Section 3, "How Django discovers language preference," in the i18n documentation, a couple of points on the LANGUAGES setting read something like:

  1. Do this.
  2. Don't do what we said in 1. Do this.

So I've merged them to remove the confusion. See attached.

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement set
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted

This bit about translating the languages is repeated in docs/settings.txt, and it belongs better there rather than here as a long afterthought. Since there's a link to the LANGUAGE setting docs here, how about only keeping the first two sentences of the "Only languages" bullet point, and completely removing the "If you define" bullet point?

The example in docs/settings.txt should also be updated to use a dummy 'ugettext' not 'gettext'.

This was fixed by another ticket (not sure which one). The current i18n.txt doc (now in \howto\) no longer has the confusing text and just points to the settings docs.
