 Replying to [comment:150 ryan]:
 > The goal is to merge edit-pages.php into edit.php and wp-admin/page.php
 into wp-admin/post.php.  Translated strings need special care. Subbing
 translated words into translated string is not translator friendly. "Add
 New %s", for example.  Post types will probably have to register "Add New
 Thingy", "Edit Thingy", and such. We can't do that for every string
 though. I think we'll have to keep the page strings for pages and then use
 the post string for everything else.

 Is there a reason we can use translatable strings like __('Edit %s') where
 %s is replaced by the post_type label.  I'm know very little about
 languages, but are there any languages where the verb changes based on the
 characteristics of the noun being acted on?

 As a side note, we should probably add label_plural to the
 register_post_type() args.
