	I adopted your practice, with thanks; but it kept putting them 
	Now I see only "disable" buttons instead of "uninstall" -- I hope 
at least disabling lasts longer. 
	Why the blazes should it be the default to lug all those blasted 
languages along, instead of having them added ad hoc by each user? They 
could include, say, six languages with at least three of them non-Roman-
alphabet, and 99 44/100% of the human race could use at least one of them 
to find the one or two missing but wanted ones.
