This would be fixed by step 1: step 1 would be used to update SDF files 
but also to create new ones. Actually, adding a language is much more 
than adding a SDF file, but this doesn't need to be addressed now (i.e., 
we can see them just as resources right now, we needn't build OpenOffice 
in those languages; and if we have something htat is only in Pootle, 
then it is a new language and probably won't be ready for months).

OK. It seems that the 4.0 language updates release and the 4.0.1 bugfix 
release could be merged to be the same release, so it makes sense to 
prepare Pootle for 4.0.1.

This will need to be properly communicated at due time, so that we don't 
risk losing work done by translation volunteers.
