Err, wait, this isn't specified enough.
What happens on renaming?
In KDE we drop all translations so that you don't see an old name when
switching languages again. But here it's a bit different since simultaneous
users have to see the folder in different languages; still, when renaming
there's no way to know what other languages should see, so I guess
discarding all translations is still the right thing to do?

And I wouldn't put anything in the spec before Joon confirms whether it's
OK with him... Outlook does have its limitations, as we all know.

Also, will you implement it in kontact? Specifying things is nice, but if
nobody plans to implement them that makes a useless specification.
