Yes, but this is not really a matter, because of the relatively small
number of affected strings and changes. It's fine if this occurs only a
few times (< 3) in a whole release cycle, and one last time right
before the langpack freeze. Or only one time, after non-langpack freeze.
Just make it happen _at all_, that's all I want.

Where should I show up with this request then?
I admit that this needs both developer and server time, bad luck, but
IMHO this is just necessary to use LP translations with the distribution
properly. No, doing only the easiest 97% of the job is not enough :P.
