Currently WPML adds /fr/ to permalinks to identify a url as French. The default language of the site is English, however WPML does not add /en/ by default for the default lannguage (English) permalinks. Is there a way to have the default language also show up in the permalinks?

EDIT: This feature has been added to the latest version of the plugin.

Could you explain your answer? Meaning did you ask the developers of WPML and that's what they told you...? – tnorthcutt Feb 3 '11 at 13:50
"This is not possible" is rarely an acceptable answer in programming and no information was provided on how to do this with the plugin. – RevNoah Jul 7 '15 at 12:50
