no upgrades sounds fine.
no translations is not a good idea.

We definitely need to get the crack GNOME translation squads onto
this file to improve it's coverage.  The best way to do that is to
set up the local copy with intltool support so that new
translations can get merged in, and patches sent upstream.

Would it make life easier if the dup lived in gnome cvs rather than
libxklavier ?
