I looked through the changes and they look fine to me, it's good to have 
this separation. Also good to see that you've also updated the makefiles 
for the new build system. If we were continuing with the old build 
system then I would suggested using AUTO_FILES_JAVA_DIRS as there 
shouldn't be a need to list every source file for every locale in the 
make files.

The only question I have is whether there is any performance 
implications for the western Europe locales. I don't know if we've got 
any tests that would tell us whether this is significant or not.
