If it's confusing, it's confusing.

How is it confusing?  The first time somebody clicks on it,
they'll discover what it does.

Go ahead and push a patch (as long as git still compiles).

WTF?!  It's a string in perl.  You've already dumped 368 lines of
translations into  Adding another 6 lines
for the translations of (main) can't be hard!

Now, I still don't think that we should have all those strings
directly in, but that's a separate issue.

Oh, and if you use the name of the chapter (via
node->section->up->name or however it's done in perl), then it
*will* be translated automatically -- it would be displayed as
whatever the @chapter is called in the translated .itexi file.
