The i18n issue isn't where the plug-ins are shipped. The issue for
plug-ins that are not part of the gimp-std-plugins distribution is the
organization of the translation effort (if there is to be one at all).
What is needed is a place where programmers can put their plug-ins
(and their associated *.po files) and where translators, who are
presumably different people from the programmers, can look to find
translations that need doing. Without this, the translation effort
cannot be extended to submitted plug-ins in a general way.
