I don't think that is a good idea, it should be left to translation team
to decide whether or not translate such applications, there are several
ways to display RTL in terminals (Acon, BiCon, Mlterm, Pterm, Konsole)
for people who wont it, some one not wanting translation can easily set
his locale to English (e.g. by adding 'export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8' to his
~/.bashrc, which won't affect the GUI), but if we removed the
translation completely then people who want it will not be able to get
