Does this integrate translations that go into XML files, GConf
schemas, and .desktop files (and other similar intltool-merged

The simplest way would be to have all localisable content (eg. source,,, files) in this
language-pack, and msgunfmt all existing MO's (on the system,
basically /usr/share/locale/*/LC_MESSAGES/ for this
software, and re-merge them with intltool-merge.  This would imply
having intltool-merge installed as user/admin tool (part of the base
system), instead of only as build tool.

I'll dist-upgrade my Warty to Hoary before I comment any further. :)
