This module is really huge, but IMHO the statistics should stay there.
The lack of translations is more visible with desc, because summary is
translatable. It will take a while but can be translated in cooperation.

The Brazilian Portuguese Team is translating the summary module using
Google Docs, so we can have 3 people working together on separated parts
of the file.

In my opinion we should try a different approach with specspo. It could
be divided into small and categorized modules, so we would be able to
define our priorities. For instance, a module only with the description
of packages from the DVD set and other module with the ones left.
