The (for me) simplest solution would be to commit po_mode to the Jedmodes CVS
repository. This way it would automatically appear in both, the next
jedmodes-2.1.tgz release and jed-extra-2.1. 

Morten, would you agree to this solution? Should the dcdata.txt file
additionally list the single files in CVS in the "sources:" or just stay as it
is (listing the tarball).

As a rather special mode, po_mode could be sorted to the ex/ dir (experimental
and exotic), however leaving it in the main jed-extra/ library-dir and
ensuring it adds just one autoload("po_mode", "po_mode") (or whatever the
correct form is), would keep the impact on non-po-useres negligible. (However,
an add_mode_for_extension() would be nice as well.)
