Hi Alexey,

nobody raised any concern. If you are confident that the patch improves 
more than it breaks, you are granted the exception for the 
Applications/17.08 branch of 'krfb'.

We are really tight to tagging, so I suggest to commit it as soon as you 
are reading this. Otherwise, the new strings might released 
untranslated. With some luck, it also gives us a week to do final 
testing of your work.
