Ouch.  Thing is, I am trying to get the web-based translation system
Pootle to grok DDTP descriptions.  Pootle stores translations
as .po files internally.  I already have the Translation-?? dump
<-> .po bridge running, but it appears that this isn't very useful
because actually a DDTS database <-> .po bridge is needed.  So,
question is, what should I do if I want to talk to the database

As far as I understand, end-users actually use the Translation-?? files.

I assume you meant the e-mail way?  I am not particularly happy with
using e-mail for communication between two programs.
