Thank you for caring :)

Well, having a metapackage which installs a localized version depending on env
variables is not feasible. Note that none of the debian packages that I know
works that way, for instance for kde-l10n-xx you should install just the
translations you're interested in.
About splitting the package producing digikam-doc-es, digikam-doc-de, digikam-
doc-it and so on:
yes, it's feasible; however if a new translation appears, the package would need
to enter the NEW queue because the new translation would produce a new binary
package. It's not good idea to force the people who manage the NEW queue to
waste their time, so if it's really neccesary to split the package I would do
when the number of translations would be somewhat constant in order to avoid the
NEW queue as much as possible.
