wasn't exactly this approach of limiting the selectable languages for
text to those that have a spelling checker discussed here last month or
so, and wasn't the result that there are good reasons why even languages
without an available spelling checker should be selectable, such as
language dependent field formats etc.?

ah there's this bug, that's probably what i'm remembering:

that sounds like a reasonable approach, all languages are available, and
the most likely used ones at the front.
