One thing that you can do though is to create a new category `lingo' which
will host all ports that refer to an port of another language, and then
leave out this category togehter with all other language ports. The might
help category misc too, which has too many ports anyway.

Since this seems to be an often requested feature, I can compile a list
of ports the move if there is enough interest.
