Copying translations between releases

It is not likely that I would want to have the same string translated
differently in different releases, so I think that the obvious
advantages of this process outweigh the risks. If I do want to have a
different translation - can't think of any specific cases but it is
possible -, I can keep an eye on the specific package/string and correct
it if necessary (that would be possible, right?)
