As I hinted I am in the process of preparing to upgrade Drupal.hu to 4.7
(from 4.5), and I especially planned to take the time and do some
performance improvements on the PO importing code. If anyone beats me to
it, then it is even better, but I am surely going to tackle it before
the release.

(First in my sight is the update process, which has some flows when
upgrading from 4.5)
