The minimal support included in Emacs for editing Gettext files is in
po.el.  That package doesn't define po-mode, it just allows Emacs to
deduce the encoding of the file correctly.  It also doesn't update any
headers.  So if your problem is with the headers, perhaps the simpler
po.el which comes with Emacs will be better suited to your needs?
