Aha - finally something useful out of this thread :)  This has great

I haven't managed to finish reading the thread on all the lists but
these are the issues I see:

* Plurals - mentioned already
* fuzziness - if [ru] is fuzzy do you merge it or leave it out and how
do you differentiate from [ru] fuzziness or fuzziness that relates to
the target language.

msginit would be a good way to initialise a file such as this by
allowing you to specify the .po and language code any number of time

msgmerge would also need to be updated so that you can update a PO
file's [xx] entries as well as its source entries.

With that in place it would immediately be useful and we can wait for
the PO editors to make it usable.
