Well, thinking this a bit further, that would not get us very far, either. 
After extracting messages (xgettext) comes merging updated strings with 
existing translations (msgmerge), and after that comes compiling message 
catalogs (msgfmt). Short of replacing _all_ of these, plugin maintainers will 
simply have to have GNU gettext utils installed in order to provide translated 
/ translatable plugins. So when the other day I wrote, there is no R-only 
solution to be had, that still stands.
