Just strip the translation changes. They will be redone automatically when 
a translator updates the XX.po file. (Shall I resend a stripped series?)
I included them for showing the effect of the changes to posplit, but they 
are not required.

But I like 0 of N for having one common title for the series. Plus for 
"temporary" information like the changes since last sending the series, or 
which test have been run.
But this one was probably too long. (I tried to repeat everything relevant 
on the patch descriptions. Not sure if I succeeded.)
