Would it not be better to generate a separate package for each of the
languages and scripts this data covers, as is done by Debian for
instance?  The entire dataset is about a gigabyte in size and supports
more than a hundred languages yet I imagine most people would be using
only one or two.

This would mean tesseract-ocr could simply propagate the
"tesseract-ocr-tessdata-fast-eng" package rather than cherry-picking a
specific file, and would establish a convention that would be necessary
for packaging the "best" dataset as well, if that's desired.

(Thanks for working on this; it's been on my to-do list for a while as
