Not translating the on disk folder will result in a strange behavior for
users of both gnome and non-gnome applications. For those users the
folder name would be in english in one application and in their native
language in another application (but still being the same folder). Using
gconf-keys and translating the on disk folder instead solves this
problem. The downside is that non gnome applications might not then be
aware that the folder is special, but at least it will display it right.
