Christian: Thanks for posting such a script.

Derek: I absolutely agree with you.

Everyone: The policy about translations on the development (i.e. non-stable)

Locally, it's probably the best solution to run the script by Christian in 
order to get rid of these problem. 

But the translations in unstable CVS should not be touched until we converge 
to the stable release.
