Only a plan. Nothing has been done until now. I think we have three main 

- how to prevent calling getttext before loading it (note: I don't want to put 
gettext in the kernel)

- what should be translated (how about error messages?)

- what should be done if a terminal is not capable of displaying most 
characters (falling back to original messages? just displaying garbage?)

Technically, it is not hard to implement gettext, but the policy side requires 
some more attention.
