Hi guys.  This is all an interesting discussion but I'm guessing it'll 
be a few years before we actually have a store and data with localized 
labels, so let's not think about it too much.   If you can just get the 
getLabel() method working in general that'll be a great step forwards. 
Please let me know when you do.

 From a widget perspective, note that (annoyingly) each widget (really, 
each HTML node) has it's own lang attribute, so it's probably best to 
pass in a lang parameter to the store.  That seems like the only 
complete solution.

As Brian's example above demonstrates, when we do finally support this, 
it'll be handled on a case-by-case basis depending on the data store.

And now to open another can of worms, has anyone talked about a getId() 
or getKey() method?
