I think we need to be hardasses and ask George to revert this commit. 
Part of working together on a group project is being willing sometimes
to sacrifice our own interests for those of others in the group. In this
case, it means developers have to be willing to sacrifice something they
want to add so that the translators can get their job done. It's a
pretty small sacrifice - the cool thing you want to add will be there in

Please, let's show the translators the respect they have earned and
rightly deserve.
