Is it that bad really? It's a step that could be done by a script and
have the POs hosted at the repo's own VCS, reached by transifex.

Is there a way to have these PO files cut into more "logical" pieces?
Translators for example would like to work incrementally from the most
to the less important ones. Or, have a PO with packages that will (most
likely) show up in the main screens of pirut, etc.

Maybe specspo is a good opportunity to start thinking about installing a
pootle server. If the strings don't change very often, the maintenance
cost (merging, etc) could be bearable.
