It's actually far less work than the current way.

No, Lucas' idea was not to parse information from somewhere but instead
simply add a string like _("Translator credits") to the About dialog
and this string is translated by something like "Frank Lanitz
<frank at ...de>", i.e. each translator adds his own name & email address
in this string. This way, the string is always translated with the
credits of the translator(s) of the currently used locale, not of all.

So, the work for keeping it up2date and correct isn't our job anymore
but the job of the translators :).
