I've got no time to do what's already on my TODO list and I'm not volunteering
for this. ;)
It just reminds me of those movies where two men fight over a woman like she's
some kind of valuable trophy and the woman overhears and dumps them both. If
we're going to change the spec for i18n concerns it would be nice hearing
someone from a i18n who has actually had a problem completing the translation
because the current means available are insufficient.
