I disagree, this output is correct. I know this is not intuitive,
but it reflects current slice grammar.
A solution is to implement the LANG_*@ notation, but i failed.
You may also try
  #!wml -o (ALL-LANG_*)uLANG_DE@:%BASE.html \
      -o (ALL-LANG_*)uLANG_FR@:%BASE_f.html
but you have to patch the wml binary.
After the comment ``create output file listfor epilog filters'',
add an @ sign after ``^x()'' (2 lines modified).
