I definitely will not change the i18n methods for version 1.4.
You are, of course, free to do whatever you like, but none of
this will go into version 1.4. I also won't adopt the sorting
patch, since it would break plugins. I18n in version 1.4 will
be exactly as it is right now.

I have a few things that I still want to finish for 1.4, and
i18n changes is none of them.

Sorry, gotta draw the line somewhere...
