WOW! I could never fit a size 50 to a size 2! Well at least don't go
to the Microsoft Office size (600MB) Better make things in separate
languages. Sorry for some big comments there...

What would make more sense to me is to make one installer with maybe 3
or 4 of the most popular languages included, then allow the install
process to connect to the internet to download the desired language pack
if a different language is selected.

With five languages (six if en-GB and en-US are two), we will be able
to cover 95% of the downloaders.
I talked about this approach with Thorsten Behrens already.

At the moment it is a matter of mirrorspace but we are trying to
improve the distribution.
