It's still saiting for listmasters to create it. I re-pinged Pascal
Hakim recently and, indeed, I hope to find it when coming back from
holidays in 3 weeks..:-)

I'm not very used to the handling of a great project with several
files with kabel or any other tool. 

You will find in scripts/, in the d-i tree, two scripts named
merge-translations and update-translations. 

merge-translations will build giant xx.po files in a directory from
all files in d-i directory

update-translations will do the opposite : from a directory containing
giant xx.po files with all d-i translations, it will spread around the
translations in the d-i directory.

These scripts are *dangerous* because not heavily tested, especially
the update-translations script.

They need more work, for instance for being able to work only on one
single language.

But, anyway, they may already help in  concentrating all d-i translations and
avoid repeating the same translations over and over in different files.
