• sync message sets in all language files based on default file (en)
    • community/devel/relang.php
    • add/delete to english, run # relang wacko.en.php wacko.??.php and all set & done
    • /*
       * ./relang.php wacko.en.php wacko.da.php wacko.el.php \
       * all changes in en.php (first file) will be moved to other files.
       * all deletions will be made.
       * all additions will be made.
       * all reordering will be made (but values remain localized if already was)
       * incl. comments! :)
       * no need to sync ALL languages manually - just edit english and push changes to other langs
       * (new messages will be english, though, and if translation is available but you change %1 or other
       * formatting - be aware: it is better to remove it, resync to other langs, than add new, resync again.
       * translation would be lost, though)
       * you can massively rename resource names, without losing available localizations:
       * use meta-comment in parent (first in cmd line) file:
      	// RENAME OldTag NewTag
      	'NewTag' => ...
       * e.g. resource himself must be manually renamed in parent
       * after running 'relang wacko.en.php wacko.??.php' then - RENAME comment will be stripped from .en. too
       * enjoy! /sts
       *//// NB /*...*/ comments in language files not supported!
