This works, but as you can check in the archives, has a number of
problems. The most annoying is that just by clicking a link the user
will add a package to the list of stuff to do and if the user doesn't
actually translate it then it increases the load of the real
translators working on that language. This you identified.

Add that these links will be followed by spiders and I can imagine you
can see the possible difficulties.

I'm not sure we really have a good way to deal with this. Perhaps the
