  Yesterday, I've tried to write a tool to split/merge panel.hints by
  using perl XML::DOM modules, but I met 'not well formed' error. So
  I'm thinking write a tool by using C (or XS) with gnome-xml (ver.1)

  To identify the content hints, can we use a hash (or digest,
  signature, etc.) of text?

  First, canonicalize the original (untranslated, English) message,
  and calculate the digest of it. And translated message tagged by the
  hash is included in hints file.

  The method like this is useful to automate the translation works,
  and may be applied to other text messages (help file, hints file,
  pot files, etc.).
