The current HEAD potfile list for xffm will be borked until 4.3.1 since
files are being moved around, merged, and deleted. But the potfile
generated from 4.2.0 contains all the translations required in HEAD
(except for "bookshelf") so there should be no need to regenerate. You
could add the translation for "bookshelf" if you want. I'm not planning
to add any other new strings since the translation table is already
if you want a complete translation.
