I thought we agreed it would be better to have all the languages in
one file, rather than having 130 files all with a few k of text
inside? Lots of tiny files really hurts read and write performance.
(130*number of repos installed = thousands)

Of course, sticking it on the OCS server is just as sensible, it
depends if we want it available offline too.
