It may not be as bad as you fear. The Finder team is said to have
completely rewritten the Translation Manager (the formerly dark heart of
Evil Open) and killed many large, foul and longstanding bugs. Also, you can
still exercise a modicum of control over Translation Manager by tweaking
your settings in the File Exchange control panel. Give it a shot.
