Yes, that's an interesting addition. I think we could write one and
test how it comes out: if it's not too long there wouldn't even be a
lot of new translatable strings, and adding a link would be easy.

If we like the outcome we could add it to Makefile and we are ready.

Yes, I think I added it only as a seealso link, since it belongs more
to the manage account thing, but makes sense to add as a "normal"
