I will try writing a custom xgettext that combines
nested·s-expressions·that are marked for translation with G_
to·a·single·msgstr that gets written to the·PO·file.  This combined
string will not be part of the source code but will be generated from
a nested sexp.  The PO file containing the combined strings can then
be translated as usual.  For reading the translation, the combined
msgstr will be constructed again by the marking procedure G_ and
looked up by reading from an MO file.

It will take me a few days and a MO file reader will still be missing.
I suppose it would be easier to use for the sxml’s author who would
not need to write special code to internationalize the sxml.
