Thanks :)

Yes, I know those. I didn't work on it before because I wanted to know
better pgAdmin's sources. That's why I mostly did minor adjustments for
this release. But this is something I want to work on for next release.

Defer please. We already did many changes to strings in beta period, and
that's not good. I'm waiting RC for another call to translators, so they
can finish their work. I'll work on the plural forms for next release.
