In cases where that's not possible, I think the current approach of
having the language selector install the missing pieces is better.
Since a few days ago this should work even better:
language-selector (0.3.3) hardy; urgency=low
[ Arne Goetje ]
* added .note files for update-notifier do be displayed in
case the language-support is not complete
[ Michael Vogt ]
* make the .note files translateable
* make the build more robust

I. e. people do not actually need to know about its existance, but get
a notification for it.
Testing and feedback heavily appreaciated!
