I'm sorry, these multiple whitespace changes were my fault due to a 
mixup with Allan Jude's original patch.  Normally, it would have been 
a single commit.

I apologize for this difficulty.  Would it help if these changes were 
reverted with a "reverse merge" of r43920, r43921, r43973, r43974, and 
r43975, then recommitted with the whitespace patches combined, or is it 
too late for that?

If there is any way I or other committers can make this easier for 
translators, please post on the -doc mailing list or to me invididually.

We are also trying to modernize the translation process, and automate 
some of the work that translators are currently forced to do.  Anyone 
who would like to help with that is welcome.
