Unless you are also a git developer, I doubt if sha1_file.c makes
sense to any translators. In my 8 years of being translator/programmer
to open source world, I rarely look at those lines (though I admit I
do). A slightly modified suggestion is just drop line number, not the
file name, but xgettext does not support that, unfortunately.
