[Scummvm-devel] ATTN: Engine maintainers

Just to explain, the reasoning behind introducing EN_ANY is this: For  
the end user, it doesn't matter much, if at all, whether they are  
playing a game in british or american english -- what matters is that  
it is english. The only case when it's different is when there exist  
multiple english versions, in that case you (or at least collectors)  
want to be able to distinguish them.

So the main effect of this result will be that when you add a game,  
then the description you see will be
   Monkey Island (English)
instead of
   Monkey Island (English (US))
which was used so far.

Also, apparently most people weren't even aware that we can  
distinguish between AE and BE (and hence both the AE and BE version  
of MMNES were marked as AE). So this change hopefully increases  
awareness of this, too :-).
