OK. Great!
If nobody has any objections, I'll try that tomorrow.

Maybe you could include this tip under a "--help" parameter in the 
script to have it documented. I guess the script itself should also be 
committed to SVN. But where...?

Once the translations in their various states are in SVN, I guess it's 
a matter of jam rules or creating optional packages to include the 
finished ones in images. The website, too, grabs the userguide from
