I'm running Ubuntu 12.04.1.

When the Update Manager notified me of a new version of LibreOffice, I
found that it was installing

           . libreoffice-l10n-en-za, South African English localization and
           . myspell-en-za, South African English spell check dictionary

I'm Canadian. I live in Québec. So I need Canadian English and French. I
sometimes use Hungarian and Hebrew. So, I have installed on my system

            . libreoffice-l10n-en-gb, British English localization
            . libreoffice-l10n-fr, French localization
            . libreoffice-l10n-he, Hebrew localization
            . libreoffice-l10n-hu, Hungarian localization, and

            . myspell-en-gb, British English spell check dictionary
            . myspell-en-us, US English spell check dictionary
            . hunspell-en-ca, Canadian English spell check dictionary
            . hunspell-en-us, US English spell check dictionary
            . hunspell-fr, French spell check dictionary
            . hunspell-hu, Hungarian spell check dictionary

However, I *never* use South African English. I don't even know how
these files got on to my system. So I decided to remove the South
African English localization and spell checking files.

The Synaptic Package Manager accepted the marking
            . libreoffice-l10n-en-za
for removed, no problem.

Unfortunately when I tried to mark
            . myspell-en-za
for removal, the Synaptic Package Manager insisted on removing
            . language-support-en
            . language-support-writing-en.


The Synaptic Package Manager tells me that
            . myspell-en-gb
needs the the same English language support file.

Is there a way to remove the South African English spell check
dictionary without removing the English language support files?
