Wouldn't it be good to implement subpackages into dpkg? And then
install only those locale subpackages which the user needs? Something

dpkg --install <packagename> --locales en_US en_GB pl cs de

or, on apt level:

apt-get dist-upgrade --locales en_US en_GB pl cs de

would be very usable. We would then have needed granularity without
creating bunch of packages for every localized program...
