As far as the spellchecker is concerned, punctuation does not matter
when looking for typos; my goal , at least, is to get rid of mispelled
words, no matter where "." or "," are.

ok I see; maybe this is the reason why I got this message:

"I found at least one spelling error in the Danish po.file.
I suggest that you ignore trailing punctuation in words. E.g. the Danish
unknown_wl has many duplicates with and without a trailing full stop."

perhaps _I_ have to filter out those ".".
BTW: if you are involved with d-i translations in Danish language I just
noticed a problem in "base-installer/debian/po/da.po":
"Den aktuelle standard-kernepakke er '${KERNEL]'."
it should be changed into ${KERNEL}
