    Well, it would be great if commit transaction makes sure required
tests pass.
    But I think just to compile PO with msgfmt periodically from cron

     I reviewed currently existing tests,  StartPunc/EndPunc and Newline seem
     close to our requirement to avoid this error.  I will check it out.

     And let me ask again: can we add new test for Pootle (by writing
test class in Python for instance)?
