Yes I do...

It is indeed FOSS written in Python.  The latest sourcecode is here:

If you can code Python we'd love to have you on board.

The aim is that it will evolve beyond a PO translator into a translation
management tool.  I'm using it for Translate.org.za so the features
being added are ones that we need.  Goal setting, assigning translation,
delegating translation, etc

I'd love to see people doing XFCE l10n using it.  XFCE has a small
enough translator community that it might be a nice community to test
some of the new features as we develop them.
