Well for one our current script only handles packages, not groups, but we could
fix that, besides that we are trying to keep things as small as possible (this
goes on boot.iso) so it would be good to know if there is anything we could
leave out for the installer case. For example it serves little purpose to ship
fonts for language for which there is no anaconda translation.

So some questions:
1) The fonts-lang aliases are going away, right?
2) Is there a table somewhere with lang -> needed font mappings
3) Are there any fonts in the font group which are there to for example have
   a decent selection of fonts for language foo in openoffice, but which could
   be left out without affecting the ability to display language foo?
