i think it is not acceptable that glibc introduces
extensions that can collide with future versions of
the c and posix standards.

but it is even worse if a translation file format
depends on such extensions which makes it hard to
fix the problem once the collision happens
(like it happened with scanf %a).

there are other problems with this flag, so gettext
manual should recommend some other solution.
