Indeed, but one has to start somewhere.

The code isn't very friendly to the developer either.
I might try to reduce the amount of stuff in the 'language dependant'
and 'port dependant' category - especially when ports share features.
At the moment minor changes can require 60+ files being edited.
I guess it is fortunate there are only 3 languages (English, French and
(I think) Polish [1]).


[1] I had to add a message to the file, I hope 'nie zmiena'
means 'do not change'.
