I'm writing in PM because don't want to take part in free-as-a-speech
vs. free-as-a-beer discussion. But my another reason to not following
another free-as-a-beer solution is that most likely, the original
purpose of Sugar (literally) has much less meaning than possible
success in joining several free-as-a-speech communities in a synergy,
i.e., here Sugar and Apertium. Using another, free-as-a-beer,
translation API will be less useful in that case.
