In fact is an idea from gabor at . I didn't knew that the *aquo* ones are 
the "latin" ones. The Royal Spanish Academy[1] don't says that it's 
mandatory to use one over another (in fact you can use pretty well the 
two types in a single phrase, that's a good reason for having two 
flavours) but we decided to use the more special one :-)

I'm afraid that our translator base will grow the day we can stop using 
tags. Or maybe if we can use less tags :-)

If I can help with it I'll be glad.
