At the moment, I'm inclined to agree with Enrico.  I don't think it's
all that helpful to have some small subset of all the programs actually
translated into a given language returned in a search for that language
string.  It's both an incomplete list (since many other programs will be
localized, but just not mention it in the package description) and also
useless clutter when you're looking for things related to actually
working in the language.
