Allow mixed content languages (?)

LinguaPlone? has been following the "mixed languages sites are evil" mantra. But most Plumi sites are unlikely to have fully translated content in all supported languages at all times. currently disables the i18naware catalog monkey patch that LinguaPlone? applies by default, so the catalog always returns all content objects regardless of language. A better behavior for Plumi sites would be to display only the selected language version for the objects that have such a translation, or the original (canonical) version for the untranslated objects.

In order to support that we would have to write a different monkey patch for the catalog. I am very concerned however with the side effects such a patch could have in terms of caching, performance, inconsistencies with other components. So I'm not entirely convinced that it's a good idea. Comments are very welcome.
