The fact is, when new .po files appear they will be committed from the TP 
versions without question, whether they are manually updated ones sent to 
gcc-patches by the TP Robot (I have de.po and zh_CN.po files recently sent 
to the list queued to commit) or auto-updated ones merged with a new .pot 
file.  So changing the GCC without getting the change upstream is useless.  
Whoever did that part of the "GNU CC" removal did not ensure that the 
upstream version of sv.po was updated and just did a local change, which 
of course got reverted when the next sv.po version appeared, so the "GNU 
CC" reference in sv.po is still there; the same will happen here if you 
don't get the changes upstream first.

I don't know if it's possible to send such patches to the TP directly if 
the translators are not active, to ensure they don't get lost, but the 
translators in question for the translations you are changing *are* active 
so you should be able to get them to submit fixed versions to the TP.

Chiaki Ishikawa had a long patch series attempting to implement them but I 
don't think they ever got in reviewable form or were following an approach 
Zack liked.
