A first iteration at a solution could look like this:

* Projects, regardless of SCM, generate POT file and use WUI or CLI to
schedule pick-up of their POT into l10n.fp.o

* l10n.fp.o has a WUI that sits in front of >1 SCM and has the ability
  - Translate through the WUI (download POT, upload PO)
  - Use one account (FAS) for all access (regardless of back-end SCM, it
needs a *l10n group that all L10N members are within)
  - Provide statistics across all SCMs

* For translators who want to use the CLI entirely for translations,
they need to work directly with the SCM, however ...

Note that I suggest a CLI for access to the same services the WUI is
providing.  The idea here would be to grow a CLI (fedoral10n?) that acts
like the WUI - it interacts with >1 back-end SCM, uses FAS for auth+,

So, first feature of the fedoral10n CLI would be for developers (and
scripts) to automate the management of POT/PO files.  Second feature
would be to give translators equivalent control that the WUI provides.

This at least is my ideal. :)  Now if I only new Python ...
