If it is really true that start up is quicker with them disabled, and I
have serious doubts about it, then the code to pick which *single*
language pack is seriously broken. 

I would think the logic is.....

If environment is *not* en_US load langpack-XX (if enabled), continue.

I can't see the logic being much more extensive than that.....   I can't
envision any programmer going through the list of enabled language packs
and wasting time....unless we are talking about an MS product...  :-)
