	Yes, Konstantin and I changed the grouping from content to

	The intention was to enhance maintennance -> for example, at
	Dresdner Bank we have a department dedicated to translating message
	cataloges. They can now send us individual message files ordered by
	language one at a time, rather than needing to edit one large file that
	contains all languages.

	It was also done to take advantage of the new XMLResourceBundle class
	in the Avalon project, which supports loading of message cataloges
	from a language/country/variant hierarchy.

	AFAIK the old one should still work, but is out dated.
	One other option would be to use an XSL stylesheet to transform your
	single message cataloge into the new format at build time. Have a look
	at the convert.xsl stylesheet I wrote in

	Other than that, we'd probably need to look at some code changes, I'm
	open to suggestions ? :-)

	Hope that helps.
