however, I think translation teams could follow this approach as "de
facto", instead of translating alphabetically. With so much strings to
work on, we should priorize on KDE's and GNOME's. So there is no need
to "repackage" a "gnome-specspo.pot" and a "kde-specspo.pot" - just
follow this approach and translate first those strings.
