[Development] Qt Linguist should tell how many strings are in a file

It was unfortunately a combination of lokalise.co and my scripts. The owner/opertator/developer of lokalise was very helpful in adjusting his service which apparently supported Qt 3 to Qt4's format. He complained about issues with the XML, which I later also experienced when writing my merge scripts. We used lokalize to get the translations from the translators and all that entails (user management, scope, etc) 

I would expect that Qt would adopt/focus on GNU gettext/PO files in the future?
