It seems to me that if as Terry suggests both the English and the translation are output then most of Ezio's concerns would be addressed.  Maybe we could even start a new trend in error message internationalization :)

An important question that needs to be addressed is what additional burden this places on maintaining Python (keep in mind that it looks like we'd be the first programming language to do this), and who is going to do the maintenance.  

Mariano, how committed are you to maintaining it long term?

This is clearly going to need a PEP, so if the python-ideas discussion has already happened, that is really the next step.  We aren't going to resolve the yes or no question (not to mention the details) for something this fundamental without a PEP, I think.
