Well, it depends on the wording, etc.  Also, the translations are
likely to be specific, which means changing such details is likely
to be mildly annoying.  If we do, we should prolly try to do lots
of such corrections one hit... (it also has the side-effect of
making the translator pay closer attention, when it's lots of small
changes like this...)

Already implemented in 1.5.x.

Likewise in 1.5.x (IIRC)

It's not dependent on linux kernel support, but rather libntfs.
I haven't checked for a while, but libntfs still needed a fair
bit of work (which I'm happy to do).  This is a high priority for
me on my holiday in .br... but stabilizing 1.5.x is more important.
