Done. I've also updated the French docs (tutorial and node names) in
stable/2.10, and cherry-picked check-translation and French updates to

However, I won't backport "Overview of music functions", because it
involves Makefile/Scheme, and I'm afraid of breaking the stable branch.

I've noticed something very cool with check-translation and Git: as long
as you keep all branches in the same local repository, committishes used
to mark translations can belong to any branch, and check-translation may
output cross-branches diffs, it always shows what should be updated.
This is very cool when you often switch branches and cherry-pick.
