I am not saying that we should ignore - I said 'it should be done before
release' - but its is not a 'top priority' really - There are other bugs out
there that I would evaluate as more important to fix.
What would you rather have - entity support or a few extra translated words?
What about 'Prev/Next/Home' tags vs. a few extra translated words?
This bug is not being ignored/shafted - Its just that I evaluated it as a
lower priority than some of the other bug reports (and by the way if I do not
fix this bug in time for release its not because I'm 'ignoring' it - its
probably because I do not know how to fix it properly)
