OTOH, if you have very few messages, why not just take the little extra
time to get them translated? But, I've also argued the other way earlier
on this list, also because some obscure error messages shouldn't block the
whole translatin from being included. However, if those don't get
translated, then we have a maintianer problem and the translation can wait
until that's fixed.
