mostly its the simple type, but for each module there are a couple of
help messsages with html tags embedded in and stuff like that, thats a
big job.

also drupal has this funky feature where navigation and theme functions
can be overridden for each locale, but since php is a lousy language
overriding is done by changing the function name in po files :-(

hopefully we won't need to ever deal with this ugly hack.
