It should be the same, but to compare both methods you should run

        orig ---(method1)---> result1 
        orig ---(method2)---> result2 

instead of

        orig ---(method1)---> result1 ---(method2)---> result2

... and then compare result1 and result2.

Copy-and-paste-and-adapt error. ;-) The command we run via 'make' uses
a temporary file as output (if I remember correctly, 'msgmerge'
sometimes produced an empty po file). So I should have written
something like

        $ msgmerge ... --compendium=OLD_PO --output-file=TMP NEW_PO POT \
          && cp TMP NEW_PO

But I had warned you - I didn't test it! ;-)
