I retract my claim that translation of hints is not needed.  It is
needed if you use them obviously. 

There are two issue with hints:
1) Nobody understand the hints code, so it is difficult to maintain.
2) There is no list of hints currently, so this is a problem.  

I don't know how to fix 1).  Point 2) can be used by using debtags[1].
This will probably solve the translation problem.

Opinions ?
