The problem will increase when KDE 4 is out. I did some porting
work to make the version in trunk at least starting but I do not have
the time and knowledge to taker over maintainership of KBabel.

BTW Catalogmanager has a long outstanding serious problem with 
KDirWatch when it uses the stat-Mode.

See: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119222

I tried to debug it but gave up due to lack of time and experience
in KDE/QT programming.

As translation is a major work to spread KDE it would be great if
somebody from the core team could at least try to fix these bugs.
