Just interested to know why it seems to disturb you so much.  We always
ship all UI languages that we support, so shipping all user manual
translations isn't much different to my mind, and it shouldn't be harder
to ignore the French manual than to ignore the French UI translation.

We have disabled this for our own release builds because the French
manual isn't complete enough yet - hoping that if we enabled it in other
builds people might see it and give the translator a bit of support to
hopefully get it to a stage where we can ship it by default too.
