Hi translators,

As some of you who worked on the 4.4 branch may have noticed, I
recently replaced the menu system in xfdesktop, and removed all of the
translated menu.xml.* and xfce-registered-categories.xml.* files in
the trunk branch.  With the new menu system, these translations just go
into normal .desktop files and .directory files (.directory files are
just special .desktop files).

The good part here is that all of these strings from the new .desktop
and .directory files that need to be translated are automatically
extracted and put into the .po files that you're normally translating

I just wrote a bunch of perl scripts that extracted all the old work
you guys did on the menu.xml.* and xfce-registered-categories.xml.*
files in the 4.4 branch and merged the strings into the new .po files.
It's possible that some data was lost, or wasn't useful for the new
strings.  But hopefully I've preserved as much of the old stuff as I
could, to avoid the need to redo translations that have already been

Anyway, I just committed the updated .po files to xfdesktop trunk.
Please look them over if you get a chance.  If you want to fill in
missing stuff, feel free, though of course trunk is not under string
freeze anymore, so strings can and will change in the future.
