Unity: Include translations directly in the source

Bug Description

Would it be possible to include all the translations in the Unity source package? It would make it so much easier to port to other distributions (don't need to download all the language packs).

The current packaging ignores those files anyway, so it won't affect Ubuntu's packaging of Unity.

It's just a matter of changing settings in Launchpad to enable translations in the upstream project and message sharing with the Ubuntu source package, which shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.

Then decide whether the translations should be automatically committed to the trunk branch (recommended) or to a separate one and then periodically merge it back to trunk.

I think it makes sense, and if there is interest from the Unity developers, I'll be happy to help setting this up.

@David: Thank you very much for the reply! Hopefully the Unity developers agree. It would be very helpful for us packagers of Unity in other distros :)
