Yoshiki and I talked about that last week and the idea with waiting for 
3.8a was to have a pre-i18n stable release. Then freeze updates in 3.8a 
until Yoshiki has caught up with the changes and then push the i18n into 
the update stream, forcing source/changes files conversions etc.
Then packages can be ported to the new world (like Yaxo finally getting 
multi-byte character support) and then have that relatively quickly be 
3.8 stable.

Just MTC (Euro ;-) )
