I'd like to preserve here for posterity this commit message (when you update a bit of code, you're supposed to write a message explaining the change) which I wrote after a particularly frustrating experience tracking down a bug caused by two very similar but not identical labels.

[BLTS-367] Do you remember those _two_ Hanna Barbera Christmas episodes (one was The Flintstones, the other Yogi Bear IIRC) which both had the same song, "Which one is the real Santa Claus?", and were identical except one had Fred and Barney walking around, and the other had Yogi and Booboo?

That's sort of how I feel about imsmd:langstring and lexmd:langstring.
