Except "general customers" who download only "official" release packages
all other users do it! Next question is "Is there any general customer
around ?" 8-)
For example, if I remember well, the "official release 2.0 package" did
not work for French player users : a bug was striking if there were
player-specific strings longer than 11 characters, and unfortunately
there were still a few in the French language file at this time.
Since then there have been at least two upgraded english.lang files and
if one wants to use a recent daily build one has to separately download
a language file at the same level.
