Since there are differences, and if you're ready to support those 
different, then we can always create two sets of resources for 
portugese: one for portugese from Portugal, another one for brasilian 
portugese. Note, that windows consider Brasilian portugese to be the 
default sublang for all portugese:s (which seems to me a bit ackward, 
but South America is likely closer to Redmond than Lusitania...)
