It is not an acceptable solution. Maintenance burden would be much
more painful than any advantages. We are currently focusing on a the
main issue: fixing Transifex.

It had much better performance in the past, working perfectly I would
say, and it is expected that update to newer version (0.9.x stable
series) will fix this.
I too, an it-IT translator involved during the past f13
cycle, get an agreeable experience with Transifex (till august 2010):
1. also online translations
2. straightforward upload/download
3. exact % reporting
All was more than OK!
I hope that it could be possible in the near future to restore that fine
Good work and good luck
with migration and fixes
I wait with karma +3 :-)
