I agree. Perhaps after we update those coding guidelines a bit more,
we can make that into a text file as well, and put it in CVS
somewhere? Our root directory is becoming awfully crowded with stuff

Agreed. Anyone want to take the lead on translations? I'm just not
that familiar with the tools to generate and merge po and pot files,
but if no one else wants to do it I can try to figure it all out.
Priority should probably go to pacman/libalpm messages, with man pages
later. However, the man pages need some serious work so we should hold
off on that for a bit.
