Hi Petter, I will do what you request, this is a rather trivial change,
but please give me detailed instructions for all cases (1 means that the
file is present, 0 it is missing):

    no.po | nb.po 
      0   |   0
      1   |   0 
      0   |   1 
      1   |   1  ->  maybe with subcases to test if files are symlinks,
                     different, ...

I have almost no opinion on how to handle such a transition, you can
discuss this issue with other interested people and tell me what to do
when you come to a consensus.

AFAICT people should be discouraged from using the _NO variants (there
is no need to be more specific than needed) so they were not considered
in the table above.
