You're a genius :) Yeah, we can probably get a pattern out of that.
If we have a macro to load them up in a MySql db we get a 3-vectored space:
1) lancode (PK1)
2) message name (PK2; this is supposed to hold unchanged thru localization)
We can get very close to "reading people's vote" by seeing which msgs are
localized say by at least 75% of the existing interfaces.
Yeah... al it should take is a php script that would parse a directory of
message files and load them in the table. After that we simply run some
"SELECT COUNT(*)"s to generate all the comparative analysis we need.
If the $msg_names hold unchanged it shouldn't even be a long script, because
you can simply parse the existing variables and use their name/content pair
without writing any CASE statement at all, right?

I forgot to mention. This could be "guessed at" by looking at
existing, incomplete files. Probably there is a fairly predictable
order to which messages get translated first. We can guess these are
the most visible and thus the most important. Perhaps this can be
useful for users who are starting new language files and are wondering
where to start.
