Even if that's never the case, gettext("yes") might start with the same
letter as "no".

I don't know of such a case, but something that may come confusingly
close: The Greek word for "Yes" (when capitalized) starts with
which *looks* just like a capital N.

Anyway, I hope the patch that's already in dev.14 takes care of the
problems - if only by encouraging translators to omit translation of
"yes" and "no" if there are foreseeable problems.
