Great idea, when developped I would remeber the programmes to not
forget that all this should works for localized files too (unless by
that time hard coded strings will be centralized in some wat avoiding
single file editing) this means give to traslation team tools to
generate righe check file in an easy way under linur windows and maybe
mac too
