[tex-live] setting up babel in TeX-Live - language selection

How can I change the suported languages with
an existing installation of TeX Live?

Whenn installing there was a dialog and I selected all
languages. But now bael load _all_ languages every time.

I only need english, german and related packages and
frensh, lating and greek.

I found a language.dat file (windows) in
"C:\texlive\2009\texmf\tex\generic\config" which seems
to be the right file to edt, but I don't know if I can just
edit that file.

What do I have to respect if I would like to change
that settings in TeX-Live?

But it would be good if the TL Update Manager will
update all languages when updating, not only the
selected ones.

Btw and to the developers:
It would be gould if a user can change the settings after
the installation and tlmgr sould be extended by such a dialog.
