Angie, unfortunately the questions put up in this beginning of the
thread are not relevant to us. We are not using the binary counterparts
of PO (MO) at all, we have no interest in the capabilities of the
library provided (ie. memory consumption, etc., as we are not going to
use that Java lib :), and thus we know how partial translations, etc.
are handled in our implementation :)
