I thought about simple checks: file modification date of the english 
template newer than of the translations? Wouldn't be reliable, but could 
often work.

Another possibility would be the translation project somewhere store 
versions of the relevant files and do diffs at package upload.

It would be a bit of work, but it's not a task needing serious AI :-)
I just wondered if something like this is already in place.
