Still, I find the existing gettext documentation (regarding how to put in
place the programmer tools for JavaScript) so hard to grasp that I would like
to see 1 or 2 hello-javascript-* examples. One of them should preferrably
work with the gettext tools directly (no wrapper tools).

Yes, I agree: JSON and XML are so similar in spirit that a generic mechanism
would make sense here as well.

Thanks again. I could have found out myself:

$ LC_ALL=C dpkg -l gjs
||/ Name                Version             Description
ii  gjs                 1.32.0-1ubuntu1     Mozilla-based javascript bindings
