There's no such list. You should add sub-options for every language a
package supports or not even get started. cf. LibreOffice, KDE,
tesseract - I even support "frm" ("Middle French (ca. 1400-1600)") there.

Nah, just minority nonsense nobody speaks like, e. g. Chinese,
Russian, Spanish, Italian, Portugese, Dutch - the list is endless and
I'm sure there are some weirdos around that want Esperanto.

What do you tell people whose language (Icelandic?) you choose to kill
off? Oh, right, you don't tell them anything because they don't
understand you because you killed support for their language.
