The script can be used directly on the DLA text/mail, btw (it's not
based on the list archive, no need to download).

Also I remember fixing one of your DLAs before a webwml admin made an
angry commit, the script is sometimes silently bogus.

I'm sure everybody understands the importance of translation, I did
quite a lot of i18n myself.  Just wondering its usefulness for DLAs.

But I figured that translating the DLAs is a matter of priority for
the translators, not us, so let's do the i18n on our side, and let the
translators prioritize :)

I'll recap the rationale points in the Development wiki page in a few
days unless somebody beats me to it.
