Fine! The only question I ask is: would you support your translation in
future? Sometimes I need minor changes and cannot get a person for
translating the needed text (e.g. Polish translation is left unsupported
now).

Hope to commit all the stuff today and will let you know when it's ready.
You'll need to update only the messages_pt.xml.

That could be reasonable to keep translations in sync, but I've never used
it that way.

Now, as only messages_xx.xml are used, I've created a stylesheet that
transforms the source file, say simple.xml, into messages_xx.xml converting
all the <i18n:text> and <i18n:param> tags into <message key="..." />.

No, I don't touch the simple_dict.xml anymore. Moreover, I was going to
remove all the legacy stuff (merge.xsl, convert.xsl, simple_dict.xml) from
CVS, but it seems that I have to rethink it.

Never thought that somebody went so far as using those stylesheets ;)
