	Great - is there no way we can reduce that work ?

	This is slow because now we have the bonobo-activation cache we don't
see the fact that it is being somewhat hammered, also we don't see that
we copy each string umpteen times (due to translation) and store them
all in core.

	The solution to the copying is to make bonobo-activation aware of the
locales of it's clients, and save scads of core memory both at the
server and the client cache, and speed copying the data by only having
useful locales there and not all locales.

	Yes - that's _MALLOC_CHECK, I always use it.
