Sounds like a fair point (as for udebs, I still don't really see how they
relate to the equation, but that is moot now).

I'm not familiar with what each level means, though.  Is there a less-priority
level for which it would be suitable?

My interest in integration is due to other things not related to how much
priority is assigned to translating win32-loader.  For example, new translators
often use the BTS to send win32-loader translations, but it would be more
convenient if they use the same channels used to add stuff to packages/po/
(sometimes this even meant that translator coordinators sent bug reports
instead of committing the translation directly).

So, is there any solution that would allow this, without imposing win32-loader
translations as a prioritary requirement?
