Look at the very end of Defaults.py for the stuff that defines the
LC_DESCRIPTIONS dictionary. A way to deal with this is to copy all of
this from the comment preceding "def _(s):" through "del _" to
mm_cfg.py deleting those add_language lines you don't want (but don't
delete 'en'). Then you can also delete the corresponding language
directories from templates/ and messages/.

Disclaimer: I haven't tried this, but I think it should work.
