Well... there's a couple factors at play here. My working branch at
code.neotuli.net has a whole ton of changes in it, and will be getting
even more as I clean up the codebase, so any patches aren't going to
apply cleanly for very long.

That said, i18n is definitely something we want to add immediately after
we finish shuffling code around. Also, I was wondering whether we should
use gettext, or whether we should use bash's builtin i18n mechanism
(which is poorly documented, but easy to use). Do you know any drawbacks
to using it?
