   Luebbe notice a good point about fuzzy. There are always two side of coin.

   1. Automatic translation are in 50% unusable and sometime had wrong
param type e.g. %s instead of %i and so on.

   2. Sometimes I translate string without being sure about it
corretness - sometimes it depent on situation what version is correct
so I mark it as fuzzy to resolve it later. Translation itself is
usable even not 100% correct.

   I work little bit on svn.e-posta.sk so know Oto's tool ;), I have
found that few translation (tool did not fuzzy flag) have wrong
parameter string even on tortoisesvn.net is translation not marked as

   e.g. pl, fa, bg, sv, ka, fi, cs (I will fix this one :) ), pt_BR,
ko, hu, el, hr (12 of 31). I did not test fuzzy mark there.

   Luebbe, can you take care about it ? Or what your plan ?

   PS: I just wonder what happen, when some body uses %s instead of
%i. Will Tortoise hang ?
