Ok, that seems useful. Currently the history is kept indefinitely, but
I suppose it would be useful to remember to last 20 packages
translated. And it's not really important who did what, but more just
for keeping an eye on things.

I have thought that for the automatic fetching to exclude descriptions
that share an untranslated paragraph with a pending translation.
Ofcourse if you manually fetch it's a risk, but I suppose a warning
could be displayed.

I'm trying to make mechanism not policy. I'm currently leaning towards
a sort of points system, where the language coordinator can specify
points for reviews/translations. So if a translator-review is zero
points, then translators can't review a translation. But if you want
to treat coordinator/translators/anonymous the same, then that's
possible too.

I guess. Maybe not for the first pass though.

Not sure actually. Like I said earlier, there's an is_admin flag that
doesn't appear to be set anywhere... But it appears to be used by some
teams, so it must be possible.
