Well, of course, I'm aware of this, but it seems that now the packages
which switch to po-debconf are very few compared to what happened in
mid-2003 when Michel and I started the work, and early 2004 when
yourself continued it.

And, despite this, we currently do *not* move from 90% for months. I
monitor changes nearly daily and what keeps us at this ratio are
mostly changes to existing translations....and new packages adopting

Hence the rant....:-)
