Now, that's something I really don't like. Automatic commits are a bad
thing, and we'd loose the information *who* did the changes.

If we really want to use Launchpad for translations (which I'm not so
happy about either: yet another server for our project beside
sourceforge, tigris and tortoisesvn.net), then the translations would
have to be manually fetched from Launchpad and committed by translators
who supervise the changes.
