Thanks tor this! It should be no problem for translators - I have another
patch, that doesn't _require_ modified translations. If you replace
_("File") with Q_("!menu!File") in your code, old translations (containing
only "File") will still work. I'll send improved patch tomorrow.

So do I :-)
Believe me, I _hate_ gettext, but it's the only thing we have _now_.
