Yes, I checked, and currently updatepofiles in ($Lazarus)/tools is 
little more than a wrapper around the Translations unit, the same unit 
used by the IDE to manage translations.

To summarize, for translations currently there's a number of scattered 
tools, providing each one a limited number of functions, with some 
amount of overlap and with some functions missing.

In an ideal world

 1. a maintainer would have a tool to quickly verify the state of the
    translations of the project he maintains, in order to possibly alert
 2. a translator would have a tool which quickly shows him the state of
    the translations he's responsible of, and is capable to perform a
    clean up, to edit the translations and to validate them, without
    being obliged to jump from one tool to another.

Pochecker provides point 1. Nothing at the moment provides point 2. This 
can be achieved either extending Pochecker functions, or by creating a 
new tool, which could take advantage for a large extent of existing 
units and components, but assembling them having in mind translator needs.

If Bart, who is the author and rightful "owner" of Pochecker, doesn't 
like the idea of making it too bloated, then creating a new tool becomes 
an option to be considered.

Project planning question: when it's 90% done, are we halfway or not yet?
