Nice idea!
U_() for "untranslatable"? ;)
"unused" wouldn't quite be right.

Jens, how about posting a patch for these things? It does take kind of
longish at first, but all the work you do then doesn't need to be taken over
by others, and they don't need to go search for stuff as you already did.

You probably know this already... Multiple working copies are a good thing.
Just file-system-copying your working copy and `svn revert -R .' on the copy
is a quick way to get a new, clean working copy. Make some changes, how
feeble they may be, and just post the output of `svn diff' run in the root
of your working copy. -- but wait, you're on windows, right? :/
