[wp-hackers] How to download multiple language packs via the API

Is it possible yet(or is it coming in 3.9) to automatically download
language files for WP, plugins, themes?

If so, is it possible via filters/action hooks to ask WordPress to download
the language files for multiple languages, instead of just what the
currently active language is?

I'm asking this, because I resumed work on my multilingual plugin. In it
I've used a modified piece of code from qTranslate that would look for
translation files and download them from the WordPress.org repo.
Since I don't really like how it's written, and because of the fact that
this is/will be in core anyway, I don't see why to reinvent the wheel.

Best Regards,
