I thought it might be something like that. :-)

I would hope that it is possible to just list the eggs that you are
interested in, have buildout install all their requirements (as listed
in their setup.py) and have the recipe only extract message ids from
those original eggs without their dependencies.  Then the 'packages'
directive would not be necessary anymore.

Or perhaps when the packages option is empty, it takes the value of
the eggs option as default.

I do not know if this is possible and I have not gone in with a pdb to
check it.

That should not be necessary I think.  At least I am not used to it.
When I use i18ndude for making pot/po files for a Plone
product/package and I have "from Products.CMFPlone import something"
in a file, then this import does not really take place.  I expect in
the case of python files it simply looks for lines like:

  _(u"My message to the world.")

Do you envision using this recipe also for translating a single
package?  Or is your target really only big software collections like
zope.app.*?  I wonder a bit if it makes the second use case possible
by making the first use case harder.

It worked fine when I tried it on zam.locales btw, except that all
lines in the resulting .pot file were changed, but that is because of
Windows versus Unix line endings in subversion, which has nothing to
do with this recipe.

If you have a fix for that and you need me to test that on Linux, let
me know.
