It worked sufficiently well for strings that have no special formatting requirements. It also worked well for out-of-band changes, e.g. merging items translated locally with those translated in Pootle.
For anything that includes non-trivial help output and special formatting, I found it to be cumbersome.

Regular local scan of trunk, uploading it to Pootle, translating/review, and commit into source.
You would not use the .pot but the .po, so as to not loose existing translations.
Pootle has automation opportunities of scanning the code base, have not explored.
Is that something we want to kick off for the next release?
