Let's take this example:

Shortcuts to MS-Dos programs are very dangerous in email in Jun26.pif

I presume the code in question takes the bit up to "email" from the
relevant entry in filename.rules.conf and the adds " in " and the filename?
In this example you get the type of not quite English to which I was
referring. Would some punctuation like a : or something be suitable
instead? That way a translator can change filename.rules.conf and not worry
about bits of English lurking in the perl. Or are you saying, Julian, that
there is a more complex situation which the current code handles but this
alternative wouldn't? Apologies if I'm missing the point.

Depends on how well one understands when the bits of wording are used...?

(Another aside is that I wouldn't be surprised if we were required to have
bilingual Welsh/English messages for everything if we ever advance from the
current small scale trial...)
