True - but when you want a one-button solution, then you also mustn't
forget about the non-windows case, where users most likely will
download two files: The main installer and the languagepack.
Windows might work one-button style, and have help as
separate/optional one/just be fine if they don't have offline help,
but non-windows user want the UI in their language, so will always
have to download two times.
That being said: A one-Button DL is doable, since the DL-Donate
combination basically works that way already, click on the main DL,
and get to another one that offers the additional ones.
But a "only download one single file" won't work - non-english users
will very likely download two files.
A "single click" will only be a "single click to start main download,
but then redirect to another page with more or less optional
