I now know how to trim locale-archive down to just what we require in
anaconda, and initial testing indicates a reduction down to 37 MB in
size.  Now I just need to make this work in magic black box upd-instroot
land, which could take a little time.

My target is < 100 MB, and I hope to have this met by tomorrow sometime.
Then we'll really be able to see if this single big image plan is
workable or not.
