Bug Description

Several lines should be commented out so they are not sent to the translation teams. Because they are commands.
In http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-branches/ubuntu/quantal/lightdm/quantal/view/head:/utils/lightdm-set-defaults.c

greeter-hide-users : Line 26 or 54 ;
show-manual-login : Line 27, or 55 ;
allow-guest : Line 28 or 56 ;

And another lines, I don't know locate on files :

to https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/quantal/+source/lightdm/+pots/lightdm/fr/+translate?show=untranslated

"Set show-remote-login to true or false"

and

"true and false are the only valid choices for show-remote-login"

What needs to be translated in these two sentences above ? Nothing ? Just a part ?

Translators need to know if they have to translate names such as "show-remote-login" and the boolean values "true" or "false" and a note for translators would make things clear.
