I don't see glibc getting fake locale support any time soon even if
it's more open than before. I can try to make gettext support pseudo
translations, though not sure if I can make it.

But yes, even if gettext does not have native support, relying on
podebug should be ok. Whatever changes we need, other projects might
too. It's better to do it outside of git.
