IMHO, such a patch has to go through upstream, where it will be
translated during the development cycle. Of course, if the patch is
wanted badly enough so that people can convince a reasonable number of
translators to provide updates, this can be reconsidered. But I feel
we're not in the situation of nautilus 2.8, when so many people wanted
the browser mode back.

I know this can be awkward, but mixing translated and non-translated
text in the same interface is disturbing for users, and I feel it's more
annoying than a missing feature.
