If we want to provide our non-English-speaking users with localized log

logs on the fly, based on the message catalog we should write anyway?
IMO, the proper solution would be machine-readable log information,
probably similar to lintian output ("dash-separated-tag variable1
variable2"), that can be postprocessed into a human-readable text in the
appropriate language or analysed by automated tools.
Writing localised strings into a logfile makes it rather difficult for
people to write proper bug reports.
