I read your mail and I agreed with it mainly. I've gone through the
GIMP source code myself lately and made sure we don't unnecessarily
mark markup for translation . I was only arguing that the layout
suggested by the HIG can only be easily achieved using PangoMarkup.

You have to see the developers point here as well and should evaluate
if the extra work of the translators is acceptable if it leads to a
better user experience due to well-designed dialog boxes. Until
there's a decent API that allows to get along w/o the use of
PangoMarkup developers will have to resort to it.
