And it is better to have it impossible to install language packs? OK.

Whiners will whine whenever something changes, film at 11.

How so? Aren't they completely unrelated? The help issue apparently is that
Safari doesn't want to open a .html file from the LibreOffice app bundle
(regardless whether the app bundle has been broken by installing a language
pack or not), and the language pack issue is that installing a language
pack in  the app bundle breaks it.

But yeah, whatever, let's keep doing things as before.
