So this would mean a need in scripty script each time a module (be it 
kdevelop, koffice or whatever) is packaged together or separately?
Can't the kde-i18n packages be created per module?
So let's say KDE 4.0 has kdelibs, kdepimlibs, kdebase and kdegames.
There will be kde-i18n-kdelibs, kde-i18n-kdepimlibs and so on.
If KDE 4.1 has one more module, the corresponding kde-i18n-* is also 
released. If a module is not released together with 4.2, the i18n 
module for that is not released.
And to avoid chaos: those module maintainers whose modules will be 
added/removed from the next release should inform (and ask permission) 
the release team and translation teams well in advance.

If this was discussed on kde-i18n list, I just shut up now. :)
