I have experimental code, that is basically running fine, that can
translate the strings returned by gettext on the fly to the display
character set.

At some point in the future, functionality like this might also be
part of new gettext versions.

Finally, one could always translate the catalog files themselves before

So there's 3 more ways in which message catalog files can be made to
work on e.g. DOS (and the last one should work now),
