The SVN directory "python/dist/src/Doc/lib/" has 276 .tex's, with an
average of 250 lines each.

Maybe manage each file independently could work.

We're afraid of this. And that's why we think that it'd be necessary
to have some automated system that tell us if the original file got
updated, if there're new files to translate, to show the state of the
translation (in process, finished, not even started, etc...).

I think that a system like this is not so difficult, but if the wheel
is already invented...
