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,
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.
