When I asked David if we would need to translate eg kdelibs.po from the HEAD 
branch (because KOffice may require the latest libs) he said that he did not 
see how kdelibs code (and, therefore, its strings) would be relevant at all 
for KOffice 1.2.

Anyway, I don't think it's realistic that translators will have all the root 
files in HEAD completely translated even before the KOffice release. And how 
would you handle the PO files for this? It would mean something like a freeze 
for these files beforehand, or an extra KOffice branch which also includes 
the libs, or -- I don't know to make this at least theoretically possible.
