Hmmm, I intended to write something about P-F there but it seems that
I left this undone:
which is a bit short actually..:-)

My usual pointer about plural forms is
It gives a lot of Plural-Forms for several languages.
And beware that even when a language does not use plural like Chinese
(lucky people!), you have to use a Plural-Forms header in the files
where at least one plural form is used:
"Plural-Forms: nplurals=1; plural=0;\n"
