i would be happy if somebody can explain the advantage of the new one 
similar translation capabilities:

    _x('Published', 'page')

in opposite to


Normally a GNU gettext processor would not allow to have the same phrase 
twice in file.
So if the new _x method writes the phrase to *.mo file the same way as 
__ or _e would do, this may lead on some systems to bad behavoir because 
of double occurance and damaged hash map table inside *.mo file.

btw: same asked on polyglot but the mails seems not arrive there.

thanks and in advance
