[OS X TeX] removal of unneeded languages

I installed TeXlive 2009 last week but could not find a way to install 
language support for just the languages that I need. I know that it 
can be done using the command install-tl, but this is only available 
until after the MacTeX installer has run. And the MacTex installer 
installs everything and has no provision to leave out some languages. 
I have tried running install-tl after the MacTeX installer has run, 
hoping that I could remove unneeded languages but this has led to 
problems. The TeXLive utility itself also does not allow to remove 
collections that I don't need because they are required by scheme-full 
(for instance: tlmgr: not removing collection-documentation-arabic, 
needed by scheme-full).

So what is the best way to remove what I don't need? Or to not install 
it from the beginning?
