Re: Packaging very large i18n material

Following on from this, what about:

KDE already groups languages (well kpersonalizer does ;)) as Eastern Europe, 
Western Europe, Asia, etc... Couldn't we compromise and have language packs 
similarly? ie I want Chinese, so I have to put up with koffice-i18n-asia, 
french koffice-i18n-weu (western europe ;)) 

Not ideal,  but better than having a huge i18n package containing loads of 
languages I don't want...
