AH, okay. Can we internationalize any scripts with gettext? Then this is of
course preferable.

I have not looked into this issue seriously, so I should not say any
further. But if seperating out a binary from the gettext helps in
internationalizing our base system, I am all for it.

It would be good if you or Julian could provide a summary of this thread
(sorry if you already did), for those who don't have the time to find it all
out. What are our options?
