Comment (by xibe):

 Thank you so much for your patch, Nikolay!

 > since we don't expect international versions to be released at the same
 time we release 2.5

 Actually, we are aiming at a H+6 release ourselves (fr_FR), and our recent
 2.5-RC1 release comfort us that this can be done. Ok, not everyone will do
 this, obviously, but just to let you know.

 > Translators can catch up in the days after the release

 But wouldn't that make it for 2.5.1?

 > in some languages these messages can sound very strange in singular

 Agreed. And we're not even talking about feminine form :) (i.e., in
 French, Post is translated to Article, masculine word, and Page to Page,
 feminine word. Double that with plurals, and you've got yet another level
 of problems :) But that's for another major release, I'd say...)
