 And I don't think that "ignoring" them would be a good thing. It would
make it harder to update them.

 I don't think that
<> is too hard
to browser, but that might be just me....

 One suggestion that would scale quite well (and would aready reduce the
list significantly) is: Why isn't it already grouped by language?  So
you only get the list of languages firstly displayed, and see the stats
for every variant of the language in there?  There are three en
variants, of course the two usual chinese variants, and some other sub
variants, too. I don't think that there are many differences between
some of those variants, but there was quite a big difference between
bavaria slang po file and the de po file...

 I don't really believe your judging here. It looks rather like the
"drip into the full barrel" (don't know a valid english phrase, though)
and doesn't seem to really get into the way. 1 in 78 doesn't really let
me grow grey hairs, do you really feel of it as such a pain?

 Yeah, but it would make it much much harder to keep it up to date. And
isn't that what should be tried to be avoided?
