We really need an intltool -> pure gettext transition guide, if anyone
feels up for taking that on, because it's not at all clear how this is
supposed to work.

I've recently done that transition on one of my own projects, so let me see if I have time to write up a migration guide.

I've done some work on this; I rewrote the wiki page titled "Localize using Gettext and Intltool" [1] so that it doesn't mention intltool anymore. Since it's a pretty drastic revision, I put it in a paste [2], maybe someone wants to check if I haven't been too overzealous in deleting?

Furthermore, here's the migration guide [3]. Caveats are that I did this mostly by looking back at some commits that I made a few months ago, and I've never done it for AppData files, so it could probably use some independent verification.
