Personally I don't see anything complicated or wrong about using .rc
files, but yes, it's a bit painful for a contributor that wants to spend
some time and discovers that he needs to do some rebuild-n-resize
iterations to make it look nice. So correct me if I'm wrong - a po file
could be tested without rebuild, right?
For a problem with adjusting sizes we could find some free resource GUI
tool I guess that creates a dialog as a IDE form designer, and allows
for changes made to go directly to rc (with a way to simply switch
languages of course). If there's a such way to do I don't see any
problem for a non-coders to make changes.
