Follow-up Comment #1, bug #52788 (project gettext):

A couple of remarks.

Being able to reorder the interpolated arguments is crucial for gettext
because other languages can have different word orders.  See
https://golang.org/pkg/fmt/ and search for "Explicit argument indexes:".  That
differs from printf format strings for C.

Go does not have a default implementation of a gettext runtime.  A quick
search produced https://github.com/gosexy/gettext,
https://github.com/snapcore/go-gettext, https://github.com/ojii/gettext.go,
and probably more.  That may make it hard to agree on a set of default
keywords and flags for golang.  But I haven't compared the APIs.  If they are
identical, this may be a non-issue.

That's not a thumbs-down on the suggestion but rather a hint that the
implementation will probably be more than a quick  copy and paste modification
of the C backend.
