IMHO the best solution would be to leave everything out of GIMP that
isn't really necessary for running, including help, catalogs and a
lot of plug-ins. For these we should have extra packages like
gimp-german.tar.gz, gimp-english.tar.gz gimp-japanese.tar.gz and
gimp-fancy-plugins.tar.gz, gimp-often_used-plugins.tar.gz and so on
which gives the user the possibility to get all the features he/she
wants without the need to download a single 50 MB package and then
having online help on its system (possibly in some curious language)
he/she never wanted...
