Does that imply translators are the ones who best know _all_ of Subversion's
potential failure modes?

After all, a developer might know 90% of the codebase well enough to know the
potential failure modes, but a translator knows _every single error message_ we
have.

I suppose there's a little bias introdued by use of SVN_ERR_ASSERT(), which
doesn't get translated.
