I don't think that's a good option. I think our two options are:
1) Translate the folder names that need to be translated using
the resource files.
2) Or don't translate the folder names at all and use desktop.ini files
so they appear to be localized in the GUI (which may require
further development in various parts).
(2) is really the way things are going these days, I belive even Gnome
is doing it that way. So inventing our own solution really does not
sound like a good idea to me (plus it has a lot of issues with duplicate
names and when you change the locale).
I think it's reasonable to do (2) even without adding support for
desktop.ini files right now. And really here I'm just interested in what
to do with these resource strings.

is wasted on screen savers.
