Suggestion: No more language packs for macOS as they are fundamentally broken

But that is essentially the first approach I tried, where a language pack
would be installed in a directory of the user (like ~/Library/Application
Support/LibreOffice/4/langpacks). The problem with that was that the
changes necessary to teach LibreOffice to look for everything that a
language pack contains in that directory, too, are large and
controversial, to code that already is rather inscrutable. I didn't have
the patience and clout to continue. (Feel free to continue.) To just stop
distributing language packs is IMHO a much simpler and more pragmatic
