It works fine for Icelandic, neat that we can continue translating
without JOSM blowing up.
Out of curiosity though since you were changing the internal storage
away from Gettext why did you go with something custom instead of
using Java ResourceBundles or whatever the system Java projects
usually use is?
I'm not familiar with Java i18n issues so it would be interesting to know.
