Inclusion of more language packs.

Dialup is kinda out of the question. With a 900mb file, 200mb more or so is
nothing. It's gonna take *WEEKS* or even *MONTHS* , extra 200mb or no.

Everyone will just have to go somewhere else to get it, even without extra
language packs. And since it's already too big to fit on a CD, the will use
either flash drives, or DVDs. And the language packs won't matter then

I think that it doesn't matter. And I use dialup. :-)
