No, to internationalize a perl script you need to add this
in your script :

use POSIX;
use Locale::gettext;

setlocale(LC_MESSAGES, ""); # => provided by POSIX.pm
textdomain("your_domain");  # => provided by liblocale-gettext.pm


print gettext("Text that can be translated"); # => provided by liblocale...

That's why a internationalized script has to depend on liblocale-gettext-perl.
And I'd like to translate adduser and other scripts like that, so it needs
to be of priority required.

I asked him todo so, he didn't have any objections, he was just wondering
about the size of POSIX.pm and associated files.
