Hmm, I wonder if RPM 4.12 would allow us to do this with weak
dependencies?

Perhaps something like having a metapackage on the system for docs and
one for each language. Then we could break up the doc and language
packages into sub-packages that are installed conditionally on the
presence of that metapackage on the system.

Of course, I think there would still be work needed in RPM to support
adding a language later, but maybe we could solve that with special
tooling or a yum plugin.
