I can't help but feel like we should have a few translations of some
of the more common messages in cvs, already, in order to flush out
problems, experience how it works, see it in action, get it refined
before release and so on.  As time goes on, it would be nice to see
the release schedule filled in with such details.

I think by integrating it earlier, more problems can be found and
addressed.  Also, there is more time to have the masses test it.  The
day of the release is a bad time to actually test the software.
