Ok, I just pushed out a new branch named gettext

Anyone with even the slightest interest (and more importantly,
experience) in localization, please take a look.

I never use localized applications. As a matter of fact, I actively
despise them and find them evil. But I realize that I am part of
minority and that many people prefer localized software - so this is an
attempt to get us started. I even added a horrible rough German
translation. Did I mention that I never use localized apps? I bet my
German translations are schrecklich... the layout of the screen running
this with LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 is just horrid (German tends to run much
longer than English).

The goal is to get this into master ASAP (as it touches most every part
of the code and makes merging a pain), but I released it in its own
branch, first, in case I completely screwed things up and this requires
a redo from scratch.

Linus promised Swedish and Finnish localizations. Henrik offered
Norwegian. So I think the major languages are covered.

Oops. :-)
