[GRASS translations] Another distribution of .po files?

Hello everybody,
although Carlos Dávila has done a magnificent work with grassmods_es.po 
till now, we (the spanish translation group) found some problems with 
that .po file because it is a monster.

Since it is so big, the interesting thing is that more than one person 
could work on it. But there isn't an easy way to do this. We tried to 
divide grassmods in such a way that the first thousand messages were 
assigned to one translator, the second thousand messages to another and 
so on. But there was some problems when two translators tried to update 
the same cvs version simultaneously because some translations are lost.

So, I was wondering if it is possible to subdivide grassmods_*.po into 
smaller .po files. I was thinking in something like this:

because raster and vector are the two bigger module groups, or maybe 
something different.

In this way, it would be easier to coordinate translations because it 
would be possible to assign each .po file to a single translator.

I don't know whether it is more difficult to create new .pot files or to 
subdivide the already existing .po files.

What do you think?
