Should not matter, the German translation has apparently not been
updated between 1.3 and 1.3.1.

I'm not familiar with the gory details of Debian's Python setup.
The message catalog for mercurial is in a strange directory, namely
/usr/share/pyshared/mercurial/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES, rather than the
usual /usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES that all other programs use.
