Hello, Göran.  I was impressed to see how hardly you wanted national
characters in your name (to the left of the @), and I think your effort
conveys an interesting set of experiences.  But I was surprised to see that
you now want national characters in your domain (to the right of the @):

I suspect that some misrewriting happened somewhere.  But, if I am wrong,
tell me, and I'll better participate in your tries. :-)

   Since this subject is brought up, how do I remove `#, fuzzy' from within
   PO mode?  I can't just edit the comment, because that leaves out the
   `#,' part (as well as other special comments like `#:'.)  I have
   removed these outside of PO mode, but it feels that there should be
   a way to do it from inside.

That might depend a little of which version of PO mode you are using.
There has been some fuzziness in the `fuzzy' treatment (:-).  We now
settled for `#,' (and not `#!'), followed by a comma-separated list of
attributes, `fuzzy' being only one of the possibilities.  I keep the latest
version of PO mode available as,
and it gets integrated, of course, in GNU gettext releases when they
happen.  In my version here, TAB is used for unfuzzing the current entry.
The `E'/`C-c C-c' pair may be use for editing the full PO file from
within PO mode, yet I would not encourage such habit.  Fuzzifying an entry
automatically on edit is a user settable option, but I begin to believe
it is abusive for many that this option is on by default.  My intent
is now to leave it off by default on subsequent releases of po-mode.el.
Users wanting automatic fuzzification on edit should turn the option on
themselves from their `.emacs' file.
