well, I hope people will give us feedback. If nobody will download these 
packages we can drop them and can think about a replacement with normal 
localized full install sets.

I think this is a general interesting question. How do we want to 
provide the binaries?

a) localized full install sets
b) en-US full install set + language pack

a) is the most convenience solution for our users and equal to the way 
we provided the builds in the past

b) will reduce space but is not convenient for the typical user because 
of 2 setups.

I would recommend and prefer a)
