While it's no longer relevant for this change, xgettext does seem to
put the strings in the order in which they appear in the source
code. I say "seem to" because I don't have a canonical source to back
me up, nor did I check the xgettext sources, but I did generate a POT
file to verify the comment.

There's another instance of such a comment where a sentence is split
to avoid leaking markup, the markup is actually critical to the proper
functioning of the code in that case. So there's ready material if
someone wants to dig into this.
