faute de mieux[edit]

RFD French part. Perhaps just faute de + mieux, but I may be wrong. --Felonia 09:56, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

keep. I'm French, and it is obvious to me that it's as much a set phrase as the English one. It's not fully necessary to include it to understand it when you read it, but it's necessary to include it to know that this is the precise phrase you must use when you want to express this idea.
