    We'll see. Personally, I'm more worried about how people who don't speak
    english are supposed to choose function and variable names. But translating
    _just_ the patch is not the end of it, and I wanted to make that clear.

    I suppose a translator can always push back and ask for a _concise_ review,
    for the sake of translation. But let's not invent problems before they
    actually occur...
