These are constant as well. You might argue that the constants can be
changed by modifying the global configuration but the package submission
form will be dropped before the 4.0.0 release anyway, so there is not
much point in fixing that now.

It is not a problem when displaying the string but translators might be
confused by "View all 1 comment". I currently like Sebastian's
suggestion ("View all (%d comments)") best.
