One thing that caught my eye, though: are there REALLY over 7000 words'
worth of new strings compared to 4.2, or is it again in large part trivial
stuff like ~ vs. _ (a.k.a. Glade conversion) that could -- and should! -- be
fixed by a script for all translations?

I did run a script over 43 help that did cover the changed hids (i.e.
xml-attributes), but did not run other automated converstion stuff.

And with UI dialog conversion any automatic conversion would very
likely not work. (in the sense of creating the mapping of old → new is
very hard to do automatically). I.e. it would need hours to look
through the diff and identify the old dialog string and the new dialog
string (and their location/identifieres) to create a mapping. I.e. the
source moves to a different file that makes the context-attributes
change, and as UI strings are short and appear in various contexts,
creating such a mapping is not trivial.

Even for help-xml attributes where it is relatively easy (as the order
in the po file doesn't change much, the po file and the
message-context stays the same), it still requires lots of manual
checking to account for added/removed lines/IDs that otherwise would
mix up the mapping.
