A good idea but nobody had the time or inclination to make it work.  It
worked sporadically for a while but build problems brought the scripting
down IIRC.  Contributions still gratefully accepted but we probably need
a new host to make it work.  If we had more people actively working in
the project it would be nice for this to work, but personally I don't
see it as a priority.

Since this is a packaged product, certainly we can post work to the web
as it's finished, but I would prefer not to do a zero day update without
the translations; that would be a regression.  The good news is that the
differences should be small enough that the translators can hopefully
not have any problem getting their pieces done quickly.
