Yes, it doesn't bring striking performance in comparison with obarrays.
Sorry for any confusion.

Yes, I'll try and let you know how it goes.

An MO file has its own internal hash table which is used to relate an
original string to the file position.  However, the hashing algorithm is
dependent on gettext internals (See "(gettext)MO Files" for details).
That is why I gave up the idea of searching in a buffer when I wrote

Anyway, I really wish Emacs could have the feature to read *.mo files,
since it appears to be a standard way for localization of GNU software.
