If possible, please do it the other way around:

    . fr.po should be with accents (iso-8859-1, iso-8859-15, or UTF-8)

    . For DOS you can provide address@hidden or address@hidden without

"@xxx" is a reserve namespace for stuff like this; currently often used
for the LANG variable with the value "@euro".
