 I mis-phrased that slightly.  ASLO would parse the PO files for the
lines drawn from the activity,info file during POT generation (i18n),
not parse the activity.info file itself (which I think ASLO already
does for versuion  number, etc.).  The idea is that the activity,info
description in Engiish would be localized in the relevant PO files at
the time of L10n of the Activity's UI strings.
