Example tmx

Description of problem:
Every translated string has its own copy of
<tu tuid="project:version:path:content.xml:id" srclang="en-us">
<tuv xml:lang="en-us"><seg>Source text</seg></tuv>

This means that for every single line of $translations-1, there are three unnecessary ones. In characters, in a small file, this equated to more than a third of the entire file being duplication.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Moderate, always

Steps to Reproduce:
- A project version with three languages, and three strings translated
- Signed in as admin
1. Go to project->project version
2. Click Export to tmx
3. Save the file
4. View the file

Actual results:
See tmx1.tmx

Expected results:
See tmx1_chopped.tmx

I haven't been able to reproduce the problem easily on the tm-import branch, so I recommend testing again after tm-import is merged into master.  There have been some changes in the way we generate TMX, even for translations which weren't imported.

Actually, I haven't been able to reproduce the problem using the master branch either.

We need more information about the translation project which is being exported.

Retested, no longer an issue
