ngettext() not enough?

Consider this message: ``Black wins by %f'' (word `points' omitted.)  I'm not
a native English-speaker, but in English it looks fine to me.  Now, if I
translate this into Russian, the resulting message---``черные выиграли %f''---
is ugly and unnatural, because I omitted the translation of `points'.  However,
I cannot put this word in, because I have no way of selecting its proper form,
since my points are not integral.

Is there any known way to solve/workaround this?
