 Replying to [comment:3 gk]:
 > I am not exactly sure about the rationale for the difference between Tor
 Launcher and Torbutton (maybe mcs/brade know that), but I could imagine
 one reason would be that Tor Launcher is not only a Tor Browser thing
 while Torbutton is.
 > Arthur: Could you elaborate on the benefit of shipping all locales to
 all users right now even though at the moment there are no multi-locale
 Tor Browser versions available? I understand why we would want that in
 case those were about to ship but it does not seem to be the case that
 this is happening (any time soon).

 I'm OK with waiting on this patch until we do. Setting as 'new' for now.

 > The big downside is a larger bundle for everyone, longer download times,
 etc. without any current benefit.

 It's about a 200 kb increase zipped, so I thought that probably didn't
 matter much as a small fraction of the whole download size and slightly
 cut down on code complexity. But I agree it doesn't seem necessary yet.
