Viewing the translation codes

Although the following is only useful to LiveJournal developers, it is an undocumented feature of the translation system, so I thought it was nifty. We all know that you can append ?uselang=XX to an address to view a page in a particular language, for example the URL
http://www.livejournal.com/?uselang=ru
makes the main page appear in Russian; but did you know that you can also have a page appear with the internal translation codes?
http://www.livejournal.com/?uselang=debug
This should make it very easy for developers to find strings that aren't yet translatable and should therefore make the English-stripping process a little easier.
