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

Hmmm - what about core translation files? I looked in
/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-upgrader.php, /wp-admin/update-core.php but
couldn't find any filters. It seems like the locale for core files is only
used in find_core_update() and that doesn't have any filters.
If it's currently not part of the design, do you have any ideas on how to
use the WordPress.org API in order to check for updated versions of the
translation files and download them?
