I have a dream that one day this group will follow through the important
discussions with adopting a proposed compromise at the end instead of
silence and disregard for effort concerning reaching a real and viable
consensus. - You say I'm pretty naive? Yeah, it's like that, anyway...

Sorry, but I really think this should have been discussed before
introducing msgctxt into yet another module (that is evolution, GIMP, and
counting...). I wonder whether the ordinary translation (developer) comment
would had been possible to implement instead of msgctxt (at least for the
time being). For now, I think so. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks for caring, but note that the vast majority of translators most
likely don't follow this discussion or don't subscribe to gnome-i18n. So
they're turned adrift, so to speak. Moreover, it's pretty sad.
