OK, but if a developer bumps into German comments while investigating 
code, it doesn't harm to check in a translation to English. Most of our 
more experienced developers know German and English, so it won't be 
problematic to find someone who can ensure that the translation is correct.

On the other hand, I'm not sure that a systematic translation of German 
comments makes sense, since there are modules that are or will soon be 
deprecated; it probably makes more sense to translate when needed.
