I'd like to keep the Preload and .pot-creation changes separate (as
separate commits) from the i18n changes. The preload changes have high
potential for breakage, I remember to do changes in that part to make my
reverse multilink feature work (which relies on a callback that never
came under certain circumstances). Also not preloading the detectors and
the actions is nice for debugging but I'm all in favour of making the
code simpler in that area at the cost of having to restart services when

Also note that the .pot-creation changes probably fixes a longstanding
problem that for creating the .pot files an outdated unmaintained
package 'xpot' is currently used, see locale/GNUmakefile, the package is
hard to build (I only succeeded in building the xpot binary, not the
rest of the package) and is written in C (for parsing python)

I'll keep you posted...
