Has anyone started working on this?  I'm having some troubles groking
how it really would work, gettext() is for C but many messages in
Emacs come from elisp code.  gettext.el?

I notice that people have thought about this problem for Guile (e.g.,
http://www.glug.org/patches/2001-07-29.gettext-support/).  Guile
support would be nice..
