Is there a reason why calling gettext from einfo() etc. or extracting
messages from tree using e.g. xgettext wouldn’t work?
Apart from technicalities, it does raise number of practical problems
to keep translations up-to-date with live tree as well as making the
messages easier to localise, as with current spliced strings it would
generally be a PITA to do.
