Follow-up Comment #1, bug #62876 (project gettext):

The Launchpad discussion <https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/1976309>
has centered around the optimal behavior for the zero case. Since there’s no
zero marker and no such thing as a zero demonstrative pronoun, there are only
awkward answers to this question. At most, it would mean that there should
actually be three forms: zero, one, and other. But this is arguably no
different than customizing the zero case in English to be less awkward, e.g.,
“No one else has joined” instead of “0 others have joined”.
