Maybe we should make a poll or something on what languages our user
speak and which localized packages are actually required. Most packages
provide gettext localizations, but some (kde, koffice, openoffice,
firefox, thunderbird, ...) need extra packages.

If you want, I could put a small poll script together (that is, if I can
get access to mysql).
