If the OLPC OS build creators (e.g. dsd) do not plan to include all of
these files in "stock" releases, then we should definitely look at
incorporating them into language packs installs.

Just like with L10n MO files there may be good reasons (mostly size in
image) not to include them all, but in a such a case  we definitely
want to make them easy to find and easy to install, without much
technical knowledge, or even knowledge that they even exist.

With a little tweaking of the language pack generating script,


the language packs could serve that purpose.
