You are right.  I don't like the glib implementation.  It totally
ignores the fact that translators are not programmers, and that they
will translate everything, no matter what you tell them.

It's working fine with glib 2.6.6 because it doesn't include
glib/gi18n.h when glib.h is included.  If I include glib/gi18n.h, bad
things do happen.

I hope when glib/gi18n.h is included in glib.h, it will be mature enough
to avoid such stupidities.
