Thanks for the explanation.
To be honest I don't know how to setup a translation domain since I
haven't read any documentation about this matter yet. I would
appreciate if anybody could help me with this. Until then I will
resumbit this patch as RFC once more and order commits according to
whether they touch usage.
An alternative approach would be to strip all gettext invocations and
simply not make contrib script translatable.
