Wouldn't it make more sense to use a bison-runtime domain instead of an
application-bison one?  It might need to be versioned (e.g.
bison-runtime-2.0), but having a copy for each app that uses bison seems
It's unfortunate that bison doesn't have any user-side installation at
the moment; it's much easier for the dcgettext model to be used for
libraries, as the .mo files can just be installed along with the .a/.so.
