Hey, hey, it's not at all a serious problem :)
I just want to know if it was a problem with my code or with the cvs
tree ;)

I know that it's not the first time that this topic has been discussed
in the list, but anyway...

why do not use gettext?

It will simplify the translator and the programer work.
I want to know if there is any special reason but "because nobody has
made a nice patch with the gettext support".

Ah, and gettext is multiplatform (at least it compiles and work in
windows) too :)
