Thanks for the patch. But only the PO file editors of the first generation
display a PO file as-is, with "msgid" and "msgstr" markers. Nowadays you
have much better PO file editors, such as KBabel, that not only provide
added functionality like compendia and spell checking but also hide the
technical structure of the PO file.
