How about that:
1. user chooses a language in GDM for the first time
2. PK tries to install the <language>-support group
3. if this group exist and some packages could be installed (i.e. not
already installed), the user is presented a nice PK popup, just like
the font or codec install suggestion, but for the support of his

If no packages need to be installed, then the user won't be bothered
by an obtrusive popup. We can do it only the first time as, well, if
it doesn't work the second time, then the user specifically chose not
to install them or to remove one of the required packages.
