luka3rd: Stop using "all but"... it was never used until some months ago on this site...
It is absolutely unclear idiom and very hard to put in context on such a technical site as this one...

English is not my native tongue and I confirm I was confused from the "all but" idiom. Actually I understood that as opposite of the proper meaning (all except vs. almost - adv.). Anyway I understood from the context afterwards that something does not fit here.
However it is just my problem - and I am glad that I could learn something new. There are thousands of translators on the internet to help me.
I totally do not agree with the argument to make expression poorer and unified so that everyone can understand (although it is nice that someone cares and proposes that...).
