My thought was that because intltool nicely splits the translations
out into po files then remerges things it would be very easy to
generate patches that could be fed upstream.

These are user visible strings in an area that intl users are fairly
likely to look.  Proper translation is a very high priority.

We could put the actual upstream version in GNOME CVS.  Fantastic.
That would make would ideal from a translation perspective.

Why not keep the fallback in sync, even if it is only updating it at
release time as you do now ?
