I think the TechWhirl Word of the Day should be "sqwooshed."

Peter Neilson asked, "To whose benefit is it, to have all the languages sqwooshed in together?"

Peter:
Probably the manufacturer benefits becaues the overhead for stocking and shipping only one item (that multiple-language monstrosity) is at least nominally less than stocking, selecting, and shipping separate language manuals for different country destinations. Such differentiation would probably also require multiple bills of materials and differentiation of the outer packaging to indicate the country/language a specific unit was destined for. So they go the cheapest all-in-one route, regardless of whether it matters to the buyers and users or not.
