That has always been how I've been planning to do it. The question is - 
what do do if there is a translated page that isn't accessible via a 
direct route from the homepage. This page wouldn't be found if we just 
followed links from a language's index page.

If necessary, you can always add pages that aren't linked to the 
cli.xconf so that they are crawled.

I don't know if this is an issue though. It is by far the easiest way to 
do it.
