Before responding to Mike, I had to look this up in the gettext manual, but
from what it says, I concluded that there is no difference between gettext
and _(). Reading what it says about 'dgettext()' (to which our _() maps), it
only says that it makes it easy to retrieve strings from different domains
(ie. translation files) but has not other differences from gettext().

From that I concluded that there should be no difference between using
(d)gettext and the _() macro.

Erik.
