L10n of Debconf templates


there are 2 ways for a package maintainer to deal with l10n-ed Debconf
templates: either put all translations in a single file, or separate each
language in its own template file.
The former has a severe drawback, because when English text is modified,
there is no flag to tell that translated text is outdated, and translators
won't notice.
So it would be really nice if package maintainers do follow the latter,
and learn to play with Debconf goodies (debconf-getlang, debconf-mergetemplate,

If my figure are right, 258 source packages have translated Debconf templates,
but only 71 in separate files.
