Doing this on the C-level (I don't know much about gettext, so this must
be taken with a grain of salt) is probably not the right way, there are
many strings that you probably don't want to translate, like symbol

The only internationalization system I have used is the one in Qt and
something similar shouldn't be too hard. For example, a macro
(or some read-syntax) could expand into a table-lookup.
Alternatively, one could extend the compiler to transform string-literals
