I think there are some stock GTK+ stuff, and maybe error messages from
other parts of the GNOME platform.

It was a hack that was used at some points to fix typos in code (eg:
if you had "Wopen" in the source code, you could probably just change
the translation of "Wopen" to "Open" in en_US, since if you changed
"Wopen" to "Open" in the code, all other translations would had to be
updated as well).
