That would be an extremely interesting approach, I though fear of some
limitations of po(4a) here with either getting huge chunks in the
message catalogue or losing the posibility to rearange parts of the text
or adding additional parts where needed.
The thought might go in the right direction, but I'm not really
convinced that gettext can help us very much here, even though it would
reduce the error rate of missing html tags or similar.
