It's a major issue. In here, we're having a serious programmer
shortage. One of the coolest things about Lazarus is that it could
allow us to hire people that comes from a Windows/Delphi background
and integrate them into our Whatever/Linux enviroment. The problem is
that not everyone is capable of writing correct (in terms of grammar
and spelling) english code documentation.

I have nearly 600k lines of Delphi code that was extensively
documented in Spanish. I don't want to rewrite the whole documentation
just because of a bug!
