There are far more than just the standard language packs on the DVD's I
purchase from on-disk.com  I got email from someone there that assured
me that they installed as much as they could to fit on their DVD's. So,
this is not from Canonical. But, hold that thought. I just emailed
on-disk.com and asked them. I'll post their reply here. 

I'm not saying I can't be wrong, but I think I'm correct on this one.
But, I ~will~ post their reply. :) Ric
