In spite of my posting in fun (as a motivational measure), I firmly believe
the purpose of Pootle statistics is to be able to track progress., not to
"keep score".  There should be some solution that allows for maintenance of
metrics (the lifeblood of any proper project management effort) without the
unintended consequences of L10n bloat.  Poolte has the ability to recognize
"unchanged" strings, there is no reason that could not be further leveraged
to generate minimalist changesets for localization.  Sounds like something
worth taking up with the folks on hte Poolte Developers list.
