As I think uf it more and more, I consider it not doable (in a simple
way). There are only small number of interactive texts to be written in
different languages (that's OK - less work for us :-)); there are also
interactive menus: would you be changing the keybindings, when there is no
the same character as in original (english) text? What about various lengths
of messages (think of fixed size buffers etc.)?
Perhaps all above is solvable.
On the international help files: done with gettext or simply with various
files in @sysconfdir@? If as files, we should consider automatic selection
of the help file using setlocale().
