I think I tend to agree here. I've been translating debconf questions,
the last ones were from xfree. It asks a lot of questions, and I would
be nice if everything is translated consistently (keyboard layout =
'toetsenbordindeling' and not 'keyboard-indeling' or 'toetsenbord
layout' or 'klavierindeling' or whatever..). But it's hard to coordinate
that at the moment. (Also because there's not a command similar to SGET
here, I think).

But I think they're already included, at least debconf templates are
being translated at the moment.
