I would agree in general, especially for a patch that fixes some
behaviour that hurts people *and* does a clean-up while at it, that
it is OK that the secondary "clean-up" part does not do as through
job as it should.

But isn't the premise of this particular patch "these 'already
up-to-date' messages puzzle readers by being sligntly different,
when the differences are not meant to convey anything, so let's
unify them and make them more coherent to help readers and
translators", is it?  I think that was why "Yeeah!" was removed, for
example.  Now we were made aware of the presence of "Already up to
date" vs "Already up to date!" by the "grep" tool.  Leaving half the
grep hits unaddressed makes the patch look like stopping halfway the
task it started to do.

So, in this particular case, I do not agree with any of the
"two-patch" or "follow-up" or "somebody else can do so".

Thanks.
