No matter what the tongue they speak, their money talks, week after week

I'm curious - why is it that Apple is so reluctant to include Hebrew text support in the iPod? If it's easily added by a third-party-written firmware upgrade, surely it isn't due to technical limitations. I can understand why Apple considers that upgrade to void the warranty, no less than one which attempts to run Linux on it; it's outside code that may cause unexpected results. But why is Hebrew left out? Wikipedia claims there are only slightly fewer speakers of it than Finnish, yet my 3G iPod includes the option to run in Suomi... (Via Gizmodo.)
