Subject Re: Release testing: i18n validation

The problem with running it as nightlies is that it is liable to fail at 
compile time when new messages are added -- I regularly have to update 
the sed script to adjust for these new messages.  I would hate to have 
the build fail because of this.

If you have any ideas, let me know, but that was the reason I didn't 
suggest it for nightlies.
