Part of this might be something to do with some secret naughtiness Mozilla
does with non-70 ports: it forces them to 70. This behaviour makes some
sites that are misconfigured actually *work* in Mozilla but not in any other
client, including OverbiteFF (Stegozor also discovered a similar effect).
Naturally kludging around this is too gross, even for me.

How do you mean? Strictly speaking, 3 could simply appear in any directory
output. In fact, I'm changing Bucktooth default error messages in the
upcoming 0.2.3 to something like
3 error text
i error explanation
i error explanation
so that it's not only legible if item type 0, but if item type 1, it shows
a very nice error document. It could even be mixed in with regular directories
as a warning class. Thus I facilitated it acting as a meta-item type rather
than taking over an entire menu, since I don't see any reason to make its
semantics different than any other itemtype.
Please speak up if you disagree :)

Excellent. Once I have some changes made, I'll have scripts available for
what needs to be translated. It's only around 20 prompts or so, so this
should be trivial.
