Thanks a lot for volunteering!  However, I'd first like to focus on
getting a nice FAQ shipped with Debian lenny.  And, as Jens said, it's
easier to convert to other formats/translation interfaces once the
translations are somewhat more up to date.  Currently, almost all
translations are missing entire sections.

The ideas sound good, though.
