 WordPress currently does not offer any method for changing the feed
 language, and generally all installations use "en" as feed language,
 regardless of their locale.

 While many feed readers ignore this setting, certain feed readers use it.
 For e.g., when the feed language is set to Hebrew, certain feed readers
 will display posts from Right to Left (the writing order in Hebrew)
 instead of from Left to Right. Another possibility is searching and
 sorting according to feed language.

 I propose setting the default feed language according to the blog locale
 as set in wp-config.php, as well adding an option to manually override the
 default in the "Reading" page in the settings section of the
 administration interface.

 Included is a patch for wp-admin/options-reading.php to add the necessary
 fields for changing the feed language. It was tested to work with
 2.4-bleeding (r6475).
