I don't think this really needs much discussion: it appears to only be
useful for translators, so it should include whatever is useful for

It tends to fall out of sync with the actual modules present because
someone has to remember to update it.  Feel free to do so yourself.

On the other hand, if a script didn't want to rely on those, they could
simply do something like this:

for module in `svn ls http://svn.xfce.org/svn/xfce/`; do
    svn co http://svn.xfce.org/svn/xfce/$module/trunk/po $module-po

... with something similar done for the branches.  Modules that don't
have po dirs or don't have a trunk anymore will simply fail.  Annoying
maintenance problem solved.
