I'm quite sure telling you about gettext was not what Paul had in
mind.  He most probably wanted to point out that any infrastructure of
this kind should at least consider using gettext, if not actually use
it.  Which is something I could agree with.

I thought about taking first steps towards providing the missing
infrastructure in Emacs.  For example, providing a way to display a
translation of a given string to a given language.  Is that something
you'd like to work on?
