We are using a database to store translations so, in that case, we will
miss only the changes done between last import into Rosetta and the one
we import from CVS.

We don't use gettext utilities to do the merge, we import the .po files
inside our database and our own code handle the import so we don't lose
the changes done in Rosetta or the specific updates done by Ubuntu
