somewhat-related question.  about strings, what's the general opinion on 
translating/not translating the strings that go into g_warning(), 
g_critical(), g_error()?  personally i tend to leave them untranslated, 
as i think of them more as messages for me than the user (if there's an 
error the user needs to know about, i think it should be presented in a 
dialog box, translated, of course).  if someone reports a bug and i need 
to ask for console output, it's basically useless to me if it isn't in 
english (or spanish, i suppose).  but i'm interested in other people's 
opinions on this...
