Great news!

Yes, that's what gnome-doc-utils is all about (well, that and shared
stylesheets and xml2po).

That's what it should support without problems.  We're going to try to
make use of gnome-doc-utils new documentation build system and xml2po
on Gnome Love day: that's tommorow, starting from 16:00 UTC.

I'll be there to fix any issues that will come up with xml2po (I'm
sure there will be some :), and Shaun will be there to help with Yelp
and gnome-doc-utils hacking.

There's currently only one problem that I see with automatically
building statistics using xml2po: we don't have lists of XML files
that need translation for each module yet.

Another big problem would be providing a machine which would be able
to carry the load of regenerating all the PO files periodically
(basically, what Carlos has done with machine
for regular translations).
