SVN sources (later 4.4 release) must be changed drastically unless
they'll be frozen, so there's always a possibility that your
translations will be almost discarded, in other words, SVN translators
won't cry if their translation will get discarded totally, I'd say
if you're going to continue a translation, try to complete 4.2 branch
at first or wait until official announce from package authors.

Also when you get conflicts due to package authors' or my periodical
update, you'll see it.po.mine in the po directory, then:

  $ mv it.po.mine it.po
  $ gmake update-po
  $ svn diff it.po | more

In case you see only timestamp is different, can continue your works
with your over-written file, otherwise update your file from that

Hmm, testing package I guess, interesting to see "svn"+"rblah" in
