The plural_table in gettext-tools/src/plural-table.c is missing plural-form
formulas for some of the major languages of the world. Consequently, msginit
is unable to prefill .po files with the proper formula.

For instance, there is no entry for:
* Arabic (despite its formula being mentioned in Plural-Forms documentation)
* Bengali
* Chinese (any variant)
* Hindi
* Indonesian

I picked these languages from a list of top-10 most spoken languages in the
world; they are not in any particular order, and they surely aren't the only
languages worth adding to the table.

See also: the Gnome project has a list of languages and the formulas they are
using for each: https://l10n.gnome.org/languages/
