All ISO-639 language codes for MySQL

If you ever needed a mysql table with all the languages detailed in the ISO-639 language codes, here it is. I took the list from the registration authority and created the table in Mysql.

There are 21 languages that have alternative codes for bibliographic or terminology purposes. In those cases I took the bibliographic ones. The script contains the 2 and 3 letter ISO-639 language codes, as well as the English and French names of the languages.

This is a preview:

CREATE TABLE `i18n_language_codes` (
  `3letter` char(3) NOT NULL COMMENT 'ISO 639-2 Code',
  `2letter` varchar(2) default NULL COMMENT 'ISO 639-1 Code',
  `english_name` varchar(255) default NULL,
  `french_name` varchar(255) default NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`3letter`),
  KEY `2letter` (`2letter`)

INSERT INTO i18n_language_codes (3letter,2letter,english_name,french_name) VALUES
