Gettext is already packaged for openembedded [1], although the newest
version is 0.16.1.  Of course, GTK+ and many other programs people might
want to port already uses gettext, so I think it is a natural choice.
Build support for the gettext way is well established, etc.  There is a
choice of software available for people to work with PO files on most
major platforms, and several converters for people that prefer other
formats, or to convert other formats to PO.[2][3]
