Sure. it looks good in this case but it may depends. we had experienced a bug
like http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=23419. it may be too early
saying that is stable in _Linux_.

FWIW "contains" isn't supposed to check the language name comparison only. it
tries to check the code coverage with orth files first and then compare the
name if it fails.
