Remember that most users probably don't keep modules of many languages 
installed, perhaps one, two, or at most three modern languages. And then 
again, if you just add the option to select all, developers who install 
the whole repository don't have to choose it. :)

Even if you had the option of choosing multiple works to add to the 
custom list at once that would be helpful. If you have to manually 
choose even ten books one by one it gets tedious.
