I approve of changing the filename.

I suggest:
- add the new filename
- change it in the English docs
- tell the translators to update their stuff
- add a Critical issue for this update
- when the translators are done, remove the old filename.

I didn't know about glob.glob() when I first wrote ?
I can't think of any other reason.

I don't like the first one.  I'm fine with having the list of tags
extended further or looking at all subdirectories of the lsr
directory.  I think I have a slight preference for just extending
the list of tags, since that's a less intruisive change and thus
has less chance of blowing up in our faces.  But since you prefer
looking at all subdirectories, that's fine with me.
