Hm, I added some tests and they work here as expected (for all
i18nscripts). However, I am not familiar with fuzzy translations. How
can I force a translation to be fuzzy? Do the existing tests pass on
your machine?

Unfortunately I noticed some other problems when testing on a Win2K
machine (hadn't done that for centuries which is evil, I know):

* Eggbasket fails to remove directories on Windows

  the eggbasket recipe is not able to remove temporary dirs (IOError: 
  Permission denied on os.unlink(temp_tarball_name), downloader.py, 
  line 81), which seems to be a common problem there (also for Windows

* `zopectl` needs module ``win32api`` on Windows

  Furthermore you need a `win32api` package which seems to come with   
  'ActiveState-Python' only to triffer `zopectl`. It is required by 

  I was not aware of that requirements before but I think we need a 
  'Windows' section in our installation notes.

Great :-) Thanks!
