A valid point...
Does such a language exist?

All my systems are configured with English locale, except my wife's and my
mother's one. My blind typing for pacman commands breaks there. :-p

Well, possibly I should just set the root account to English locale... :D
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Best regards             my address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*    Chris            cc -ox -xc - && ./x    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
