I like that section.  Is it possible to discuss how that relate to the
address@hidden stuff recommended by gettext to solve the similar problem?
Which method is preferable?  Are they mutual exclusive, or should they
be used in combination?  Those things aren't clear to me.  From the
gettext manual:

   It is recommended that you add the "languages" address@hidden' and
   address@hidden' to the `LINGUAS' file.  address@hidden' is a variant of
   English message catalogs (`en') which uses real quotation marks
   instead of the ugly looking asymmetric ASCII substitutes ``' and
   `''.  address@hidden' is a variant of address@hidden' that additionally
   outputs quoted pieces of text in a bold font, when used in a
   terminal emulator which supports the VT100 escape sequences (such
   as `xterm' or the Linux console, but not Emacs in `M-x shell'

   These extra message catalogs address@hidden' and address@hidden' are
   constructed automatically, not by translators; to support them, you
   need the files `Rules-quot', `quot.sed', `boldquot.sed',
   address@hidden', address@hidden', `insert-header.sin' in the
   `po/' directory.  You can copy them from GNU gettext's `po/'
   directory; they are also installed by running `gettextize'.
