'gettextize' requires the user to press Enter to acknowledge the output. And
it has annoyed a lot of people. Some distros patch out this part of gettextize.
In summary, people don't like that.

Should we introduce an official status 'deprecated' for gnulib modules that
are meant to go away soon (and make gnulib-tool highlight these modules
in a particular way)?

Should we just play more with boldface output?
