I wrote small tool (svn.e-posta.sk) which extract data from .rc and .po
and show some info about overlaping keys. This tool is writen in .php
and runs on linux so there is not easy way to run restext anyway. This
tool works now only for sk translation, but can be easily switched.
I have found that even English translation has lot of overlapings.
 * &Help overlap with &HEAD in many dialogs
 * in some dialog ("merge" for instance) has same text multiple times

Is there any will to fix it ?
