In the past, any attempts to go to a subset of language have always met
with strong resistance. Just kicking out some fonts/input methods, but
leaving the "unsupported" translations in the packages may send a
somewhat mixed message, but is probably the only thing we can do since
noone knows how to make %_install_langs work.

Anyway, if we go with this approach, there should be at least a comment
in the kickstart file explaining how the excluded font groups have been
determined.
