[Geany-i18n] wondering about help translation

I don't think we will come far if everyone pushes his own direction. We 
need to:
1.) Split help to several separated geany_h_nn.po on the same cliché as 
we translate gui.
2.) Use the same tool collection as we had until now, merely with 
additional scripts to boost them. We just introduced waf and there is 
probably no common knowledge about it (I admit, I personally used it 
previous week for the first time!).

So we need to boost, make robust, not to expand too fast. That's where 
Enrico is right.

About index: no, this is the main (core) quick help file to redirect, 
installed by default. If you choose another language for interface or 
you want massive help, you select additional help file and download it. 
Pointers from it are in the main file and autoredirect to it.
