 Hm, I just got an idea....
 I think it's the same as yours, but beware: Before merging catalogs you
 have to remove the headers and duplicate entries or msgfmt will refuse
 the compile them....

 Theoretically, yes...

 No, despite of replacing gettext.... :)

 We could also use to remove the barriers in GIMP i18n for know. This
 would only have one big limitation we also suffer from at the moment:
 No different translations for same wording but different meaning.

 Everyone: Since I stumbled over a severe problem which probably means
 that I can't realise my solution with gettext at the moment, would it
 make sense to you to:
 a) Move the used catalog from its standard location to the homedirectory
    of the user?
 b) Merge all translations into this catalog with help from a
 c) Remove the hackery from the sourcecode since it would be unnecessary
 d) Release GIMP 1.2?
 e) Head for a proper solution afterwards? :)
