POTFILES.in is in the repository because we were trying to work with
some translation tool website that would build the gnucash.pot file for
us.  That project failed to work, but we kept POTFILES.in in the
repository anyways.   The file has been in and out of the repository
numerous times over the years.

We have home-grown tools specifically because none of the published
tools would include all the information that we want (e.g. line numbers
from scheme files).
