Thanks for your reaction. I've been thinking about this a bit. At
first I liked the idea, but since translation strings can be applied
globally, you might end up with a number of rows of "Due:" right below
each other, if I used your suggestion:

Due: $ 50
Due: 2012-01-31

Which isn't what I want. Although I do see your point. So, I'm now
trying to decide how to handle this: install my own template? It would
be a solution, but not worth it, as you noted, I accidentally
committed it already just today.

Which other options do we/I have apart from just letting it go??
