IIRC, we discussed this topic several years ago and already agreed up 
it, then :)

IIRC², the only problem left had been agreeing upon which "languages to 
carry" and how let this "extended filesystem" interact with rpm 

[Problem: ATM, these lang-subdirs are installed by individual packages, 
i.e. most users only see a subset of "all languages". With an "extended 
filesystem" people would see all of them, with most of them being empty.
%ghosting them?]
