Something else is being worked on: when a package has all debconf
translations incomplete or no debconf translation at all, a warning
will be issued by lintian (the Debian package QA check utility which
already does several checks related to wording or i18n of debconf

This will at least give package maitnainers a better chance to
*notice* that they "broke" the translations and they should schedule a
translation round.

Credit for this work should go to Jorda Polo.....
