I don't like this.  Implies those who translate are second class
citizens.  I'd rather have member/non-member.  Those who just
occaisionally send in patches then have incentive to become full
members, and it doesn't leave people feeling somewhat resentful.  Lets
aim for just a 'member/observer' role, and keep the barrier to becoming
a member very low.
