This makes sense in general, but in the case of qemu, most of the text
is displayed on stdout (on the console/terminal). Gtk wouldn't make a
difference here, as only the title bar has any text that is send thru the
graphics driver (the text you see in the guest OS, by the time it gets to
SDL/GTK/XLib layer, is just a bunch of pixels). I don't see how localization
applies to qemu. It is true that the help text and such would need to be
localized, but GTK wouldn't help too much for that case anyways.

The only part of qemu that this issue applies to is the caption on the
title bar. Seeing that it is only in one place, this shouldn't be hard to
