I absolutely agree. Would anyone be up for creating a wiki page with the
suggestions, somewhere under

So for now we've got:


Note that this feature has been implemented a while ago, but for it to
work, the universe packages that we want to be translatable will have to
be slightly modified, and that the ultimate decision on what to include
will probably come from the maintainer. But in any case, we should start
out with a list from the translations side, so that we see for which
packages we've got demands.

Also, as we're nearing the release, and we're past all freezes, we won't
be seeing any translatable universe packages for Oneiric yet, and this
will have to happen for P.
