changing the msgctxt is problematic from Pootle point of view since:
- Pootle will detect these as new strings that will be imported with
no translation, and
- Pootle will mark old strings as obsolete.
Please hold, and work out a plan to push these strings to Pootle in
order to avoid losing translations. How many strings will be affected
by this change?
