But this is how gettext works, it create a 'po' file with  all tranlatable
file, now
if you add a new modpack (and of coure use my patch :) all old translations
be transalted, to translate new ones, you have to mark as translatables in
ruleset file, translate it and regenerate the gmo file.

It could be done easly... in fact I think it is done... (I can't remember)
