They'll have to do this anyway if they're not satisfied with whatever
the defaults are.

This all seems like major overkill. Does anyone really need this kind of
fine-grained control over disabling comic modules? If you just want
Dutch comics, then don't download anything except Dutch comics; the
typical use case is to run "dosage -c @" from a cronjob, which will
update the comics that are already present in your comics directory.

Categorization along these lines is quite a subjective issue; perhaps
having comics organized into categories is useful, but I'm not sure that
supporting it along the lines you've described is worth the complexity.
