Great - thanks.  I was actually going to write something very similar for yum-utils for F11 to allow automatic installing of langpacks, etc, for when installing packages.

My idea was to use meta-packages for that though.  So if you have have say the "japanese-support" metapackage installed and then go to install openoffice it would pull in the Japanese lang pack for you automatically.  I agree with Rex that it needs to support more than just langpacks.  Eg installing kde should pull in ibus-qt if you are using ibus for example, but I think that could be done.  There was also a request for such support for emacs support subpackages, which might work both ways (ie either when installing emacs and/or the program the subpackage is supporting (eg emacs-git)).

So how about including this in yum-utils?
