This seems a good idea to support translators. But it has some caveats
which have to be considered while implementing. E.g. a dummy server may
not be written to the registry when exiting the app.
Many strings which are not easily understandable without context are
probably error messages. A translator would still have the problem "when
is this string xyz used".
Win9x support is still not implementable. Our weak 9x support is not a
database connection issue; it's the operating system lacking proper
unicode support, which is unfortunately *the* limiting factor for your
"dry mode" target audience.
