[Gretl-devel] translate "const" and "time"?

Maybe suggesting to translate "const" was a bad idea, since it is a
command parameter. I now see how translating it will be confusing (as
we will have to see it in the specification window).

On the other hand, "time" is just a variable name and I suggest making
this translatable, unless there is a  technical obstacle requiring to
have "time" in the main window and the specification window.

Best regards
