I'm reviewing suggestions submitted by gwlc and pengsu in 'OLPC
Content' and 'OLPC Software', but I can not find corresponding
interface in SoaS. As I'm a newbie and do not have an XO laptop, I'd
like to ask them whether strings in these categories appears in XO
only or not.

As this question is irrelevant to any specific language, I think you
or other people may tell me.

And, do gwlc and pengsu join this mailing list? I'm looking forward to
your reply. :)
