Manny feel free to do the work, but in my eyes it pretty much a make

what's important and what's not.

This is exactly how I my experience when hacking other peoples glade files.

When you see one that is clearly named by a human, it indicates not to
mess around with it, as it must be called by the c code.

When you see frame40, you know that you have freedom to muck around 
and change it - which is something you might do when redesigning a gui 
to make it more usable.

I would recommend leaving the generic names as they are a good clue
to glade hackers as to what is flexible and what should is essential
by the program. Removing this distinction will make it harder for 
3rd parties to have a go at improving usability and higifying.
