I don't see how Transifex would get in the way if we intend to keep
compiling Pidgin from the repo and see the changes before pushing them
upstream (a very important phase of translating, IMO). I'm talking, of
course, about the anon repo... It's another thing if you have committing
rights and you are able to commit the PO file by yourself. 

But I'm all for getting away with the hassle of opening up a bug report
in Trac every time we need to update our PO file. And that's what
Transifex is made for... The result is that translators are able to
commit their PO file by themselves through a web interface.
