For the case there's only one or two translators, we can potentially, if 
desired, exclude these languages from the process. For the case that you 
simply want to commit a one-liner to a module "owned" by someone else, I 
strongly disagree. Why? Because if someone is taking a module, that 
person is starting to translate it (or so it should be). If you fix a 
one-liner while another person is translating the file, you might just 
introduce a conflict.

The reason we introduced it, is because we had a lot of people asking 
for exactly such mechanism. But I'm happy to discuss the issue, and am 
not set either way. I simply felt it was the right thing to do. I could 
have been wrong.
