An experimental po-debconf is available at

It implements the following proposal:
      no.po | nb.po 
        0   |   0     Silent, as there is no translation present.
        1   |   0     Warn, request that the file is renamed from
            |         no.po to nb.po.  Prints -no localized fields.
        0   |   1     Prints -nb and -no localized fields.
        1   |   1     Warn, request that no.po is removed.  Prints -nb
            |         and -no localized fields (might be different).

I will upload it to unstable in a couple of days.  If would be great
if someone wrote some text to put in po2debconf(1) ;)
Please check also the changelog entry.
