This is a very nice idea I think. And I cannot see any reason why Daniel
seems to simply ignore the ideas. Thi sdiscussion is abrupted by his
announcment and call for translations. Sorry for that.

Absolutely. Thats what I suggested. But Daniel doesn't seem to like the
idea. And I won't write a script that isn't fully integrated in the
translation process. I'm out (of this topic).


PS: Anyway, I'll still contribute to this project's part with a german
translation if nobody else is writing one yet.
