Right, The only alternative I can think of(*) is linking with GTK+ and
making the mutter-clutter API a wrapper around
gtk_widget_get_default_direction(). Not great either, though I guess it
doesn't really matter, given that gtk+ is already a dependency of mutter ...

(*) besides bringing back the entire translation infrastructure for a
single string - though I'm not sure multiple translation domains per module
are even supported
