1. it'd have to be available at the kickstart level too to be useful for us 
and 2. I don't think it's that great a solution, either. (It'd still cause 
trouble for DeltaRPMs, plus it's not that great to have RPM just not install 
some files, we stopped using that RPM feature for translations long ago 
because of the problems it caused, I don't think going back to doing things 
that way would be a great idea.)
