Hi Jeremy,

To be honest, I'm in two minds about this one. I think the change in
itself makes sense, although at this point in the cycle I'd be leaning
towards just leaving the string as it is. It's not the extra work, it's
just the fact that some translation teams might not notice the change
and end up with an untranslated string at release time without noticing.

I'd give it a +0.

That said, as there is already another translator that gave his +1, and
unless someone else says the contrary, I guess that's a +1 as result :)
