I don't understand it, nor the comment
"An exception is a non-strict plural form msgstr, where one of the
arguments may be missing (as handled by KDE; pure Qt in fact cannot
make proper use of gettextn call with non-strict rule)"
The Qt4 QString::multiArg method gives an "Argument missing" warning
if you do something like QString("abc%1def%2").arg(arg1,arg2,arg3),
and similarly the QString::arg gives an "Argument missing" warning
if you do something like QString("abc%1def%2").arg(arg1).arg(arg2).arg(arg3)
Does KDE something different? If so, can you point me to the source code,

Hmm, sounds a bit kludgy. It would indeed be better to have a release
