OK, changed again in the last few revs. I stripped out all the
condition="pot" attributes that I added previously. I then put a load
of items in <option> tags and excluded <option> from the checking.
This does 2 things:
1. Reduces the spellcheck output :)
2. Notifies the translators that this is something that should not be
translated because it is a program option (or variable/property name).

Maybe <option> is not strictly correct in all these cases, but it
works well enough.

I reinstated the condition="pot" in the SubWCRev COM interface because
the methods all look like normal words, so there is no clue that they
should not be translated. They are all in separate <entry> tags, so it
will not break the translation. I have added a leading '.' just to be
sure there is no match elsewhere.

The last problem area is the server_apache.xml file, which has a load
of stuff that should be neither translated nor spellchecked, and I
haven't worked out the best way to handle those yet.

Sadly, due to the aspell bug that Stan found, the checking misses a
lot anyway, so if anyone can build aspell 0.60 for Windows that would
be great.
