Interesting... maybe it would be useful if you wrote a log message, so
it's easier for other developers to see what you're doing.

Localization of text messages is actually important to the Chicago
developers too; we'd like to work with you on this if possible. I'd
just like to see some more discussion about on the list about this,
rather than a humongous patch.

For example:

* is it definitely safe to use gettext? it looks like that is what your
patch is doing. My impression from the other thread is that libintl
(the runtime library) is LGPL, which is fine, while the compile-time
tools are GPL, which is also fine. Does everyone agree about this? Is
there no controversy? Is the research "closed" on this?

* is there a specific strategy or plan of attack for gettext-izing our
code?

Talk to us... let us know what you're doing. It might even make sense
to start a branch for this work, if it needs to be done over many
commits. It would certainly make it easier for many people to
participate and watch the changes happen. :-)
