FWIW, it took me a few broken bootstraps before I remembered that
all didn't actually mean all but just some.  I've since trained
myself to spell out all the languages explicitly (in addition to
typing all just to be safe) but I'm happy to see that I wasn't
the only one shaking his head at the confusing misnomer.  Thanks
for fixing it!
