Anybody ever considered switching to some completely different system like gettext? I use it in web development and i think it rocks. Of course there are a few caveats because it's not funny to get html entities inside PO files but I solved this problem with a wrapper function and a simple markup language wikipedia style.

As long as you create the canonical message string in the English
strings file, it will eventually be translated into other languages.
Siebrand will most likely switch translatewiki over to the 1.3 branch
and strings format once that branch gets a beta or RC release.
