 When this milestone is set by a lead developer (nacin), then to commit for
 that is the intention, I beleive.

 In my language, Norwegian, we also need singular/plural forms for
 "selected" in this case, but "selected: %d" doesn't help.

 In English, adjectives, like "selected" becomes this usage, do not have
 separate singular and plural forms, but in many other languages they do.
 Like in Norwegian:

 "1 valgt", but "2 valgt'''e'''"

 On the other hand, if you say "% images are selected", then "selected"
 becomes a verb in preterite. In Norwegian, at least, verbs does not have
 different singular/plural forms.
