I will get a new set of files and try again. If the error messages
remain, I will send them to you tomorrow or wednesday. Sorry for not
being specific enough, I just thought that it was a well-known bug.

You're right. Would you agree to put all "de.config", "en.config" etc.
files into another directory? Or do you dislike the idea of having one
file for every language? My intention was to make adding a new language
set as simple as possible (drop in the files, done).

Hmm, let me explain. As a German, I only learned French and English. I
know that you English speaking folks cannot really imagine how this
formal/informal style works. But believe me, this is _very_ important in
German (and French) and I think that this is a feature well worth
By providing a formal language set, Md2 becomes useful for business
applications. It is generally considered rude/inpolite to use informal
language in German business email.
By providing an informal set, Md2 will be accepted by non-business
users, as well. As an example, Germans netizens generally use informal
style on usenet. Someone who uses formal speech demonstrates that he is
a new user and doesn't know how to behave among the crowd. Most private
or recreative mailing lists in Germany use informal style. I wouldn't
"like" a mailing list server that uses formal style in that scenario.
