Hi Jesse,

In some applications, everything's done at the module that loads
translations and renders variables into messages. We usually add a few
lines of code to that section. (In Perl it's just tr/0-9/۰-۹/)

The part that renders variables into messages (like %1 in "%1
tickets") checks for the language and if it's "fa" changes the digits
of the number variables from default to Persian.

I guess that's the way that it should be done for RT too, but since RT
is using a templating system I don't know where all these things
happen. I tried changing digits at Interface::Web::loc, but it doesn't
change all the numbers because some numbers aren't passed to
the loc. (They're just numbers, no text.)

FYI, there was a game which had 10 messages for "0" to "9" that would
be translated by the translator! I don't remember exactly, but I guess
it was Frozen Bubble!
