A solution:
 - have domains point to mageia.org host server;
 - have a vhost for each domain, that will rewrite the request "mageia.$tld" to
 - have the webapp decide or propose where to go, depending on:
    - a locally maintained map of tld => language when this is easy [1]
    - browser language preferences
    - user interactive decision if needed

[1] Mageia.org website is handling languages, not countries. TLDs are not
related to languages, but to countries, or non-country stuff. In some cases,
however, there's a single match (mageia.fr => mageia.org/fr for instance). In
some other cases, that may be different (mageia.ch => de(-ch), fr(-ch),
