  We'll discuss among Kst developers and get back to you ASAP.  I think we 
have all the i18n() changes in CVS now.  I had hoped to get in one more 
feature but I think that's dangerous at this point - it will be too buggy.  
The docs are an outstanding issue but I understand your need to freeze them.  

  How much time exactly do you think you need?

  Also I will be in Paris from Thursday Nov 4 until Nov 13.  If any i18n team 
members need a demo or a meeting to learn how Kst works and what things mean, 
I could arrange that one evening, either in person in Paris, or on IRC since 
I'll be closer to most of your schedules.
