Because we are very close to the stable release we are working towards for
over a year now. I18n is its final state for months and noone complained
about it recently. Every time we changed stuff with respect to i18n, it
produced lots of problems and I'm very happy that it seems to be working
for most people now. We are not going to change anything here before 1.2.

use it for the 1.3.x series.
