Hehe, good one Jeff.

I'm migrating the old Damned Lies instance to the new Django-based Damned Lies this week, and I'm also looking into how much work it is to add publican support. As far as I understand Dimitris, the Django-based Transifex won't be ready in time for F11, and adding multiple file upload in the TurboGears-based Transifex is low priority.
