Grouping translators together along with the Hurd libraries and build
system makes the life of developers a lot easier. It reduces the
overhead related to build system settings, and it also reduces the
likeliness of mistakes. It really is the pragmatic approach, and IMO,
it strongly beats the apparent advantages of separate repositories.
