for a web-project we need a nifty handling of language
customisation for the users of a website. The site should
make an attempt to guess the language of the user according
to the IP where the request comes from. Alternatively
this can be augmented by a hostname lookup and then
examining the toplevel domain.
However - as for some domains you cannot be sure what
language they correspond to - the IP solution should
give better results. Yes - the user may change his defaults
etc. its just the first guess if the user has no cookie
I vaguely remember, that there are some IP-chunk <-> country
relation tables, but wonter if someone has already used them
or if there already is some module.
