Win32 does have GNU gettext available. No real other choices here. Rewriting
gettext to be fully BSD is an option, but one that I'd rather avoid. Yet, if
we have to make changes to it, we're likely going to have throw out all of GNU
gettext. So, I'd rather live with any issues with GNU gettext. (Noting that
Solaris 9's gettext is also suitable for us.)

The es.po file is a start.

This is already done in the svn_cmdline_init in libsvn_subr. Or something
like that. But, this is the standard entry point that we require for our
applications. Hmm. We need to do something for the bindings. Hmm. -- justin
