I thought of another problem. Versions. Are they in the control.tar.gz for
each subpackage? Or is there a small control file in each subpackage that
contains the info? 

Another thought. Should signatures be in a single .tar.gz, like I suggested,
or should they be in each .tar.gz

If they are the single .tar.gz, then translators would have to get it updated
when releasing a new version of a translation.

Don't worry  --  shop.
