Ok from me. We're already a week and a half into the string freeze, but
on the other hand this seems like an important feature for the whole
GNOME 2.6 release, perhaps allowing the Slashdot hordes to rant a little
less about being shoehorned into new Nautilus¹ behavior². I think the
interests of translators will have to stand aside somewhat to that.

So in case the release team agrees to this, please tell gnome-i18n@ once
the patch has been committed so the translators know when to update
Nautilus translations.


¹ Perhaps Nautilus should be spelt uppercase in the message.
² I think "behavior" should be spelled without the "u" with American
English spelling, and Merriam-Webster seems to support that theory
( And
source messages should use American English spellings according to the
GNU/GNOME standards.
