Then we need to be very explicit about it to all translators. This would
be the only gettexted package that I know of, that expects the
translators to keep the po files in sync with the source code.

A lot of translators sitting behind a modem will *never* download the
full CVS, but rather just touch their .po-file. So any new strings will
get lost for their language.

Maybe the maintainer could make it part of his release sheudule to 'make
update-po' only when a release is close and no strings expected to
