    Your arguments do hold some water, and it may make sense to have more
    than one translation catalog for Emacs, but we shouldn't go overboard
    and have hundreds of catalogs.

One issue is, how do we associate a string with the proper catalog?
If there is just one catalog for all of Emacs, there's no problem.  If
there is a catalog per file, we can do that by recording the file that
the string was loaded from.  But if catalogs are grouped in some
larger way, how do we do it?

I guess we could have a catalog per directory.  Then we could make
the association based on the file name's directory.
