   Of course they do. Why wouldn't they?

Was just asking.

   I have some ideas for a mechanism that would allow to do such
   inter-translator linking, but it seems rather complicated and there
   are some possible failure modes that I'm not sure how to handle
   sanely. All in all, I'm not sure it's really worth the
   trouble. Probably I will only find out once I start doing fancy
   stuff with translators...

If you do start experimenting with this, please share the results.

   No idea what you mean :-(

Ignore that, just some unprocessed thoughts on the subject.
