This was about gettext domains. I decided to use gettext (and thus .po 
files) for parts of the layout, because these parts of the page aren't 
changing. For example, on every page is an introductory note explaining 
what the following list of programs is about. This text is the same on 
every subpage, so instead of translating it again and again, I figured that 
it would be easier to use a gettext template for that.

I already included support for Debian-Jr and Debian-Lex, because those 
projects are using very similar lists of programs to be included. I didn't 
contact their maintainers yet, because I want to further test the new 
template on Debian-Med. Once I'm satisfied with its function (and the "API" 
is not changing anymore ;-)), I'll send a mail to the Debian-Lex and 
Debian-Jr projects.

Other Custom Debian Distributions can easily be added, by the way.
