I kind of enhanced your script to use the CPAN module Locale::PO for reading 
the .po/.pot files. Your implementation did not handle multi line msgids and 
msgstrs well.

My change adds all strings in the plugins .pot file to the resulting i18n.c 
file, even when no translation exists for the string and it does not sort the 

I called it pot2i18n.pl to take into account that it reads the .pot file too. 
Usage is analogous to po2i18n.pl. You must specifiy the plugins .pot file as 
first argument.

Feel free to use my changes for your next version if you like.
