No, I never thought of reinventing the wheel. I was just thinking to 
provide the minimum required for translation maintenance, which, given 
the amount of small changes to resource strings (lower/upper case 
changes, an & added or moved or removed for kb shortcuts, punctuation 
changes etc.), is IMHO a relevant part of translation activity.
Opening a real full fledged po-editor is another option for more 
important editing. See Bart's answer on this subject.

I'll keep it in mind. Thanks.
