Does this mean that each time we _add_ a translation for a module  
(not updating an existing translation), we need to edit this file to  
show our language code?

This is similar to what is done at Gnome: we edit the configure.in or  
configure.ac file, placing our language code in the alpabetical list  
in the ALL_LINGUAS line.

I've never been keen on this Gnome process: firstly, it's not  
obvious, so you can work hard on translations, not realize this  
editing has to be done, and end up with your translations not used,  
and secondly, I get very nervous when editing that configure.xx file:  
I'd hate to mess it up.

So anything that separates the translation-adding process, and the  
other essential source commands, but is obvious and easy to do, gets  
my vote. :)
