Each webmin module has lang and help sub-directories with translations.
Also the main directory of each module has config.info.* files for each
language.  Deleting the languages you don't need will slim things down a
lot.  Also the msc3 theme (/usr/share/webmin/msc3theme) is unnecessary and
can be deleted.  (Be sure to change the webmin config to reflect this.)
Using the .deb packages is not going to be easy so you might be better off
just creating your own custom webmin setup in /usr/local.
