Any progress on this?  Current CVS doesn't work due to a distinct lack 
of themes.  :)

That said, I don't think your original proposal is that sane, as it
basically means that we'll have to provide translated copies of every
(otherwise identical) theme.

It makes far more sense to properly internationalize all output strings, 
and have those referenced in the themes.  (via Locale::PGetText)

We'd need a set of "core" strings, plus one set of per-theme strings.  
It actually makes for a decent upgrade path:

1a) Convert core from gnump3d::template to HTML::Template
1b) Convert one or two core themes to HTML::Template
2a) Add per-theme internationalization support 
2b) Add internationalization strings for core themes
3a) Add "global" internationalization support
3b) Start merging common strings from themes into core
    (things like labels, headers, about text, stuff like that..)
