If that a real problem for translators?  I would think that the time to
download the tarball over a 14.4 kbps modem in some far part of the

I'm fine with this if it's actually requested by the translators.
However, I would prefer that we only keep the latest revision for every
active branch.  I know that has lots of bandwidth, but let's
respect their free hosting of mc by not wasting their resources.
