Timar had/has some plans around moving to using gettext directly
throughout LibO. But that doesn't exist right now, so rather than make
that a blocker on this I've stuffed in a simple solution. When (if?) we
move to gettext natively then it basically becomes fairly trivial to
directly use gettext especially as that knows about .ui files already
for extraction purposes and doesn't know about .src files.

So conversion to .ui is a bit of a help towards directly using gettext.
