So, 'Kerberos V4'?

No problem at all. The discussion we're currently having is *exactly*
meant for this: have reviewers and maintainers agree on what is the
final version of templates *before* the reviewer launches the
translation update round.

So, our duty is to make a final version from the templates I sent.
That leaves us with a choice to make for:

- single or double quotes (it seems that advices go for single ones,
mostly we kinda arbitrarily decided to go with US style, even if most
reviewers around originate from UK (Justin, James, MJ) or have learned
English the "UK way" (/me...)

-Double spaces after period or single spaces. Here, the call is
entirely in your hands, Russ. As most said, this is indeed not
somethign that hurts eyes anyway and overall consistency will be hard
to achieve so we just give a guideline
