I've done some digging on this in the past, and basically the only reason 
we needed glib-gettextize at all is because it doesn't create the intl/ 
directory.  IIRC, current gettextize has an option for it, as it should, 
and I see no reason to keep glib-gettextize around *at all*.  Auto* stuff 
is hard enough as is and doing these sorts of silly hacks makes it even 
more confusing.

So if we have another reason for dumping it, let's dump it :)
