in kdeedu/kig/, i have this little code..
cd $I18NDIR
I18NLANGS=$(find -name 'kig.po' | grep -v docs | sed -e

to find out what languages have kig translations..

i guess you could do something like
for i in $(cat kde-i18n/subdirs); do
        cd $srcdir/kde-i18n/$i/$module/
        if cvs up $program.po; then 
                I18NLANGS="$I18NLANGS $i";

i just mean that imho, this restriction is quite easy to code around
imho, and even without doing that, cvs2dist is still quite an
improvement over cvs2pack.. 

anyway, that's just my humble opinion as a cvs2dist user :)

Nothing so needs reforming as other people's habits.
