These files are binary files.  You don't want to edit them; when I view
a directory with po files using dired, I don't want to see the .mo

We should make sure to find a way to add .gmo/.mo files to
`dired-omit-extensions', even if we don't want to add them to

Concerning copying and renaming: That's valid for other files, too
(.dvi, .pdf, .log, .aux, .elc).
