There is now a new patch which positions the lang chooser at the
masthead. Users' are being requested to offer their inputs whether:

a) we stick to the way it is currently (at the bottom of the page and
with UX issues unless the patch from 11057 is applied)

(Reference - http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=11057)


b) we switch to the new position on the masthead using the patch from 14252?
