Hi Jim,

I've pushed a version of the sort branch that contains the following

1. Try to minimize changes to translatable strings
2. Improve diagnostic messages for files0-from edge-cases
3. Use the new standardized files0-from test script format
4. Avoid use of the '>' operator
5. Follow the log message summary template in HACKING

If it helps I've pushed a branch called HACKING that adds a new section
for translatability tips and includes your guideline above verbatim. ;)
