[Gnash-dev] i18n in server messages

I'm starting to write HTTP error messages for Cygnal and I'm concerned about internationalization. HTTP has a header field "Accept-Language:" which specifies a list of acceptable languages with optional preferences. I just read over the gettext documentation and apparently the only way (at least that I could see) to switch languages is with setlocale(), which isn't thread-safe in general and by all reports slow. Everything I read points to this being completely intentional, given that the only use case was one of a user sitting at their workstation using local software.

So, is this assumption right, that there's no overt support for multiple simultaneous languages used by a server? At the very least there would have to be some run-time way of querying what's available in translated form, and I didn't see anything like that at all.
