I remembered another one: 

5. data/Freeciv (Xaw client only).  This file is usable as an 
X resources file, and is also compiled into the client.  It 
contains some strings which should be translated.  It would be 
possible to providea a translated resouces file, but a danger 
is that an out-of-date resources file can easily crash the 
client, or create bad visual effects, or effectively give 
broken dialogs.  And I'm not sure whether all available 
translations of the resources should be compiled in...

Maybe somehow have translated resouces file provide _just_ 
translated string resouces, to override such strings in the 
basic file.  As well as being more compact, this would give
less chance of bad effects from out-of-date translated resources.
