I agree, thus suggesting the following:

* Remove translation marks (will soon push this to the above merge

* Replace `--show-rules` with a more common `--verbose` option to show
  rule descriptions while `convert-ly` is running.  Right now,
  `--show-rules` only emits the rules but doesn't do a conversion at
  the same time, which is rather useless IMHO.  Not sure whether my
  Python abilities are good enough to implement this feature; anyway,
  this will be a separate merge request.
