I have no problem with this and I know this. I only like to see
'translation' on the prioritze list. 

Wichert send some list like this. This is ok, and I can wait. I hope the
'etc.' is not to big...

But we need some of this papers. Maybe you know, someone make a patch
for dpkg to support this some months ago, and the dpkg developers don't
like this. 

This is ok. It is the code of this developers and they must maintain
this new code and they must like the patch. But without some guides or
some concepts a third men can't start coding...

Maybe you see the problem...

It is not usefull, if we make some code (and we make this already) and
you say 'We don't like this...'. Please make some comments, write some
guides for the support of translated descriptions and we _can_ write
usefull code.
