I wonder, why not to insert gettext() in every message in LYMessages.en.h
with the renaming file to LYMessages.h at the initial stage without global
expanding of messages back to the C source, it was more maintainable at least.

Except LYMessages there are only a few "internal pages" like Print or Cookie,
which (probably) need a translation.
