This sounds (technically) ugly. However, if you can embed that info in the
string (i.e. technically only one arguments), then it sounds nice.

i.e. "free\0beer" (although C will have problems with \0 so we might need
some other delimiter).
OTOH, if the extra argument is a string I could only do this in perl and
leave the ugly C detals to Daniel ;)
Another way to view this would be to embed some meta-comment into the
string, which is in addition used to key the translation.
