There is a non-automatic solution for this which I have just committed
to the APT CVS. It is simply as follows:
1. Add de.UTF-8 to LINGUAS.
2. maintain both de.po and de.UTF-8.po. They differ only in the quotes.

Since the change to libc seems unlikely (and most definitely not in time
for sarge unless it takes as long as I fear), this is my preferred way.
