I'll try to implement this variant.  I've realized that the patch used
in gnutls is bad: it changes the *.gmo filename, but it never patches
the library to use the new gettext domain.

I'm not yet sure if I can use this approach in upstream: that may change
the gettext domain used.  But it can be a best-practice solution for
debian packages.
