Do it programmatically BY going into the configuration manager.  Well, sorta.
Check and see if there are any DCOP hooks you can use to tell the environment
to switch languages.

(You can also do things like:  "dcop kicker Panel restart" to reload the
panel, if necessary, to get tooltips to appear in the new language, etc.)

Lemme know if you need help.  I've got a shiny (albeit unstable) new box
at home running Debian Sarge & KDE 3.3.  I'm happy to poke around when I have
time in the evenings.  This kind of stuff is quite interesting to me for
some bizarre reason. :)
