My experience tells that when a language is present in po/ directory but
not in the ALL_LINGUAS list, it is due to the fact the translator ignores
about that variable. (in fact I started adding them after I received
a message from a translator asking why his translations weren't showing
up in latest Gnome)

If the file should be present in po directory but not in the ALL_LINGUAS
list, it should be better to put a small comment saying so:

# Don't add lang 'xx', as it is not good enough yet
ALL_LINGUAS="aa bb cc dd"
