Well, this reminds me the issue #218 I opened and the response I got:
This being said, if a kind soul has the needed skills to provide
a patch this will be much appreciated ;)

Incidentally, Slint translators (and, I assule, Salix and Slackel

urgent need to upgrade, especially if that brings more dependencies,
Just my 2 ¢.
