This is why anaconda stopped setting %_install_langs -- having to
install every package was fairly ridiculous.  As it stands right now,
the only thing stopping someone from writing a simple "add language
support" program is time (it could in a lot of ways just be another
"view" for system-config-packages that showed groups which are marked
langonly in the compsfile)
