At least some time before a _stable_ release, I think there should happen some 
type of string freezing. Otherwise we'll have wrong (even broken) docs 
for too long time.

As for the line number syncing between files and their translations, I realize 
this is not soo important, BUT it is still a very eye-straining task 
to keep track of updates when (for instance) the original simply moved a block 
from a place to another.

How do you do this?
