I think everyone reached this consensus. Additionally it makes it
similar to bash with TEXTDOMAIN variable. So the use is
secondary_locale_dir=<my .mo directory>
echo $"Text to translate"

Because I discovered an important bug in gettext (inability to disable
it or change locale_dir) it needed a restructure and squeezing this was
trivial. Given gettext importance I did so.

However currently there is no "printf" in grub and it would be too big
for freeze exception. Lack of printf puts limits to localisation.
