And me too. I still remembered it clearly when I encountered CVS
conflict for the first time, and ran into panic -- finally I just
retranslated everything.

For the 'unmaintained translation take longer time to make dist' thing,
this point is not so important. Unmaintained po files do take longer
time during msgmerge, but that's only noticable when the package has
many strings -- which usually implies the package is already very big
(like evolution). It sounds to me that the extra time earned from
committing po files everytime is negligible.
