Localization improvements w/ bonus other improvements
Lots of localization improvements in this patch!
Keeping track of other improvements besides localization:
confirmation added when clearing transcript
added ability to override spark.properties on a global scale
added ability to disable checking for updates or set frequency (in days)
Lot of good work in this patch. Doesn't apply directly so might need to do it by hand. Many thanks to Lex Parsimoniae for this!
