Yes please, this would be a massive bonus.

Next most important showstopper (IMO) is that we can't see who has
translated strings. It's vital to do QA of existing members (especially
for those groups who haven't been careful with approving members) that
when going through translations on a package, you can see WHO has
submitted a particular translation. You can see it for suggestions, but
not translations.

Next most important showstopper, which i just filed now, is that lines
can last 500 characters without being wrapped, this makes it
unbelievably hard to check people's suggestions, as I've explained in
the bug report:


It would be awesome if some of these could be fixed.
