No need, you will just be enabled in the scripts I made and you will be able to get the results right from the

Currently I am working with po material, but I will switch to po-debconf after i make sure that the scripts behave ok on
this material.

BTW, the current po (do not confuse with po-debconf) material is broken for some languages (fr and de) and such errors
will be caught for po-debconf, too (the logs will be public).
