not needed, ctxtools does the translation and this way we keep the conversion located at one poit

what we need to figure out is a way to 'merge' patches back into the main cont-en; of course this is scriptable. I assume that you keep the relation between commands and additional edits in a separate file/database (again something we need to describe. 

one thing i need to do is to make reusable templates, so that we only need to edit e.g. style, color etc stuff once
