It does permit the translator to move the "Set" around, but it doesn't
permit it to wander into the "debugging of" clause, or to be on
different sides depending on the item.  I think the TP would prefer to
have "Set debugging of remote protocol" in the PO file.

But I'm a far, far cry from an i18n expert.  Is there a TP list for
this sort of question?
