Yes, but why ~20 dictionaries ? Do you know peoples who need and are
able to write twenty different languages ?

I think the best user friendly installation method should be to ask the
user to choose itself the dictionnaries he wants, whatever the
installation method chosen is (default or custom). With two buttons
"deselect all" and "select all".
