Looking into NEWS.Debian.$lang instead of NEWS.Debian should be a 20 lines
changes. We first need to translate them, I'd say.

The basis of the framework exists, IMHO. What we need is a specific module
to po4a (from unstable), which could be done in <100 lines.

Then, the tool to convert debconf templates to NEWS.Debian would be easy to
do since we use po files to convert both. msgcat is thus almost enough.

That being said, a working infrastructure to ease collaboration between
packager and translator is still to do and will require some more work...
