I believe that it will please both Brazilian and Portuguese
translators/users as even though imho it would be better to have
something translated into one of those languages than to have nothing
at all, I feel that a lot of people feel very strongly against having
pt strings instead of pt_BR, and vice-versa. In other words, users
would rather see something in English that see it in any other
language other than their own.

So +1 for the split (disclaimer: I have not been an Ubuntu user for 3
years now and am replying with my generic hat on)
