Hi all,
I noticed that some program messages are localized, others are not and I
struggle to see some kind of logic begind.
The CG says:

"Do not localize/gettextify:

* ‘programming_error ()’s
* ‘programming_warning ()’s
* debug strings
* output strings (PostScript, TeX, etc.)"

Fair enough, but:

git grep '(ly:warning (_' scm | wc -l
git grep '(ly:warning "' scm | wc -l

Are there reasons for this inconsistency?
I think you'll find that a "warning" and a "programming_warning" are different 
Ok, I haven't expressed my thoughts carefully enough.
It is clear to me that a programming_warning should not be localized.
What I do not understand is, why some warnings (ly:warning)
are localized and others not.
