There is no need to know perl to know the right parameter to pass to
one of xml-i18n-* scripts, and what to add to po/POFILES.in, etc.
What is needed is a step by step guide for package mantainers that don't
necessarly know about perl, nor about xml-i18n-tools, not even about i18n.

Last time I tried to "xml-i18n-tools'ize" a source tree I ended in deep
trouble; well, there was a bug at that time, but however, now I prefer
to be sure before attempting again :)
When a source is correclty "xml-i18n-tools'ized" then it works very well
(well, there were some small bugs I reported, when more than one '='
appeared, or with '\'. I hope they are fixed now)
