Description of problem:
The language chosen at install time claims to not affect anything but the install interaction language, which is fine. However, there is not any way to select the set of languages that the installed system should support, nor what its default language should be. In particular, an interactive install with all package group buttons selected results in an install that supports only US English.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select English as the install language
Actual Results: No translations are installed, run-time language is en_US.UTF-8
Expected Results: There should be a way to select the run-time language, and if it's in firstboot, then firstboot should be available in all languages and ask the user which language to use as the first thing.
The install-time language sets the default runtime language. When package
selection comes back, you'll be able to select additional languages there just
