Guess I need to look at your schema... the way it's done on advocacy is
that the translation entry isnt created for a language until the first
time an article is translated. once its created its marked "up to date",
and then if the original text is edited we mark all existing
translations "not up to date".  a UNION query grabs all non-existent and
not up to date and presents a lit for translators...  timestamps could
work, though you'd have to track it for each translation...

What status are new comments put in? If they have no status, delete or
approved seems to cover it...  anyone else have an opinion on that? btw
doesnt hurt to leave reject bit for now so it would be low priority even
if we remove it.

hmm... Dave dont you have some crazy bit of URL strings you pass in to
be able edit comments on a page?  or maybe it just shows the entry
number and you have to manually delete the entries?

OK, once that is done, how does a translator know what needs to be
translated... guess this is kind of a doc thing :-)
