I withdraw this request for a while. Discussion have shown that there
is not yet "rough consensus" on it (yes, I know that section 3.5 of
RFC 4646 does not make consensus on ietf-languages a mandatory

Also, the discussion on Erzgebirgisch have shown that germanic
languages are a difficult issue.

I will post soon another request, to add a Comments field to gsw
saying that gsw-FR is suitable for alsatian.
