If the string to be translated can be easily identified (e.g. by a
regexp), there's no need to mark the strings in the Texinfo file, and
regexp substitution with a Python/Gettext combination on the Texinfo
file or output files is a solution. Such a mechanism already exists in
buildscripts/html-gettext for translation of the node names.

(slightly off-topic)
Btw, is there any chance that Texinfo is actively developed to support
internationalization? Would that need sponsoring, or an important number
of contributors?

Happy 2007
