Beautiful. It is actually great that they are receptive to our
suggestions, I think it will help them too.

If it's only a file, maybe the quick and dirty method is simpler.
What about suggesting to the po4a folks that _they_ do the import
in their tree?

Perfect! World domination is at hand... :)

This is great Francois, thanks for doing all the hard work on getting

translation is the type of project where we can expect less technical
