      Description

      There are two major reasons an admin would like to user force a language to docs:

      1. I am using an non standard language pack (let's say pt_br_my-institution-version), and would like to use it's parent language for docs, but it seems this is not how moodle works right now
      2. I think the wiki on my language has almost no documentation and i think that a reasonable part of his/her users can read the english version or maybe copy and parte it on an automatic translator so in the end it would be better to direct them to the english version

      I know that new features are not welcome in 1.9 anymore, but i didn't have the 2.0 code right now. I will port it to 2.0 in the next days.

      Hope you like.

      =)
