another nifty resource bundle tool

if you do i18n work you should probably already know about IBM's cool resource bundle manager. while plumbing the depths of the java i18n forums, i stumbed onto another one, attesoro that looks equally functional. like IBM's tool, its a pure java solution and produces proper java resourceBundles (ie. unicode chars are encoded using escaped ascii, \u0000 style). these are a little difficult to deal with in cf as you have to spend some resources to parse the data--i normally save resource bundles as utf-8 to get around this, it also helps with managing translations as humans can see human readable text data. in any case this looks like another decent weapon for your i18n arsenal.
