Context for gettext strings

This is a feature request. I am using gettext withy PHP. Most often, the
context is important when translating strings.
Would it be possible to implement an optional comment strings for
translators, that would explain the reason for the message, so that
translating is easier?
E.g. we could have in the po files:

msgid "this text need to be translated"
msgcom "this text explains in which situation the string is displayed"
msgstr "this text is the translated string"

While gettext would be called as (in PHP) gettext("this text need to be
translated","this text explains in which situation the string is displayed")
