Asking the same question as I did when this request was made at Ubuntu:

I can't help wondering about the reason why you would need it. There are 
already translations of Linux software into Belarusian, and the 
be_BY.UTF-8 locale is present.

Are you thinking of establishing a second Belarusian translation variant 
of Linux software using the Taraškievica orthography? If so, have you 
considered which huge undertaking that would be? Are there enough 
Belarusian (Taraškievica) translators available for such a project?

Not saying it can't be done; just advising you to think twice.
