Request for Clue: i18n of fortune-esque things

So, as some of you may remember, after a discussion on debian-devel about
wanting some way to give a "tip of the day" or similar functionality for
new (and sometimes used.. er... experienced) Debian users, I did an ITP for
fortunes-debian-hints. It's now in testing (or so the PTS would lead me to
believe), and has a small, if hopefully useful, seed of hints. (Speaking
of which, folks should feel encouraged to submit more - I have a mild
preference for using the BTS, but email to my @d.o address will suffice if
you're only doing 1 or 2 and want to avoid hassling with it).

What I was wondering is whether there is a way to do translations of
the fortune data, without having to have 'fortunes-debian-hints-<lang>'
packages. Granted, I probably won't be able to do much useful about
translating them, myself, but I'd like to at least know if it's doable to
support such a thing.
