but gnome-terminal.mo... doesn't exist for most locales. ffor example for
gnome-terminal. same with inkscape, or gimp... the only ones i see are for en_*
- n de, fr, es, pt, ja, ko... etc.
that mo can be sanely used for the app - but a launcher/menu having to load an
extra N .mo files (1 per app/desktop) just to get 1, 2 or 3 strings from them
for the .desktop... that seems a wonderfully extreme way to do this. and
evidence doesn't show that this is the case - at least here on 10.04
