Trying to make this actually happen. Just narrowed the list down
hopefully to the following issues:

WIP patch on the list, it should do the job.

I think we can proceed now that http://trac.transifex.org/ticket/683
has been fixed. Our translators will either need to use the web
interface (which will be tricky for some of the fixed-width strings)
or use transifex-client-hg
(https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=45787) from the AUR. I will
be checking in the .tx/* configuration to make this possible.
