Of course, but it's most likely "lack of time" or some such.

I'll trust you on that one.  But to tell you the truth, I have my hands full
with getting the new compile.el to works as well as the old one and the
localization seems like an orthogonal problem.  Patches are welcome, but
I won't write them myself.

I don't understand what you mean here.

Yes, that's a added problem indeed.  Hopefully it is "safe" in that
a non-recognized case is treated as `error' rather than `warning' or `info'.

Ah, indeed, that's a ...hmmm... problem.  Thank you for tracking it down.
I'll look for a fix ASAP.

There's preciously little elisp code that doesn't make me wince.  ;-)
