No problem, I don't feel blamed. But without starting the task, I don't
know when the i18n stuff would have been introduced ...

That's true, but there's another point "We have to add a number for each
kind of error, instead of a simple String message." [1]. Of course it
would be easier to have a number based knowledge base for finding a
specific problem.

> Regarding the numbers, we may remove them, I also agree.

Looking back we had a small discussion about using numbers or not and we
had for both solutions pros and cons [2].

BTW: Whatever solution finally is chosen, it should also be the
preferrable one for message translation. Up to now only error messages
are translated. 'Common' messages are still to be done.

Felix
