I don't think we should do that for USB isos. That adds iso QA, space
required on mirrors in addition to people downloading the wrong image
(and maybe a ETOOMUCHCHOICE?)

language-specific CDs is one step ahead and we will see how this scale
with disk space, iso QA and loco providing their default, but I don't
think we should rush in language-specific USB isos.
