It was just a general remark. I personally find newsgroups/mailinglists 
easier for discussions than bugtrackers/etc.

Your argument was that if something isn't used it's harmless (or has no 
Anyway my apologies for being worried:
- the pagetree has received quite some criticism for being slow
- the pagetree was completely rewritten, so re-entering old code is not 
something to do lightly
- the hook will be called/evaluated for every item in the pagetree; its 
impact on speed should be looked at
- the pagetree was redesigned by the usability team; I would at least 
consult them about changes which make it possible for extensions to make 
modifications to it

Sorry, that wasn't clear to me. I removed the -2.

If the surrounding code is largely new the hook code can be considered 
as new.

It doesn't need a ticket. The pagetree was redesigned and reprogrammed. 
If during development the code was removed for a reason there isn't a 
separate ticket for it.

Sorry, I meant to say that I don't consider functionality which isn't 
implemented to be a no-brainer. A no-brainer is something so obvious 
that it doesn't need any thinking.

I haven't used it in a while, but a year or two ago l10nmgr did a 
marvellous job at this. It was for a site where localization editors 
would do the translations with Trados and the necessary files could 
easily be exported and imported. There were also possibilities to do the 
translations online or with Excel files.
There even was a nice Xmas video by Kasper to demonstrate this.

It seems you want to build an alternative way. That's fine. I was just 
wondering if the core should provide methods to clutter the pagetree 
with additional information.

Anyway, I thought it just went a bit too fast when I noticed the 
'submit' button active without any peer reviews.
After the UXW team tells us whether it was an omission or it was left 
out on purpose we can move on with this.

Kind regards / met vriendelijke groet,
